Open Letter to SouthCoast Restaurants: Please Hop On the Butter Candle Trend
Dear SouthCoast Restaurants,
There is a new food trend catching fire online that you need to jump on immediately. It’s a butter candle and it’s as delicious as it sounds.
Author and influencer Meg Quinn recently shared her take on the recipe that has mouths watering across the world. This isn’t just a butter-scented candle. This is an actual candle made of butter.
Her recipe was simple.
She added some roasted garlic to room temperature butter, then poked a hole in the bottom of a plastic cup for the wick. She poured the buttery mixture into the cup and let it harden in the refrigerator. She tore away the cup, plopped it in the middle of a loaf of bread, set that wick aflame -- and a beautiful combination was born.
Truthfully, there are a few flaws that could use the expertise of a head chef. Quinn admitted that it took a while for the butter to melt enough to be spreadable, and there were a few close calls with her bread slices near the flame. But, speaking on behalf of all carb lovers, there is definitely a masterpiece waiting to happen here.
Imagine going on a date to Carmine’s and starting off the evening with freshly baked bread paired with a butter candle. Or maybe walking into Inner Bay Café and smelling the sweet aroma of flaming, melty butter at the center of a fresh pop.
I think this author is on to something, but it’s up to you, SouthCoast restaurants, to perfect it.
If you’re willing to try it out, I will happily be your taste-tester.
