Wait. An entire show dedicated to butter? YES! We welcome Haley Whalen of Arthur's Market to talk about the virtues of butter and take your calls. The number is 800-348-2551. Ray Graf hosts.

Haley will also administer an in-studio butter taste test, featuring butters by Arethusa Farm, Ploughgate, Vermont Creamery, Cowbella and more!

Haley Whalen explains her fascination with butter:

Essentially, my interest in butter stems from two places: (1) It's delicious, and I love to eat it! (2) As a product of one ingredient (in the case of unsalted butter), butter is a very direct reflection of its source: the breed of cow, the cow's diet, geography, season, etc. In this sense, I have personally become super interested in understanding butter's terroir and in finding the most flavorful butter and/or cream for making butter. In the UK, where my obsession with butter began, there are some incredible producers, and more recently, a few very high quality artisans have emerged in the US, so I'm eager to help promote the conversation here and open people up to all that butter can be.
