    Really cute article - GK is a great commentator. I will confess, I don't 'get' the frozen butter thing, at all.

      I think GK may be a spy amongst us...

        Oh, GK is a Chowhound for sure. In a 2003 piece he did just before Thanksgiving, he fairly rhapsodized about butter and its key role in the Thanksgiving menu. A snippet here:

        "...you brown it and you add butter, and you keep adding butter, that's the secret of Thanksgiving. No secret about it, you just keep basting, basting, basting, adding butter; pound after pound after pound. You keep adding butter until you think maybe you've used too much butter, and then you add a little bit more, and that's enough, right there, right there."
