Garlic Butter, Anywhere in the States?

Does anyone know if I can possibly purchase the wonderful garlic butter you get in Amsterdam, mostly at the Steakhouses? Loved it, couldn't get enough of it! The best I thought was Cafe de Klos by Leidesplein, wonderful ribs there too! If anyone goes say hello to Peter for me! He is the way cute bartender there! Tell him the crazy American Tina says Hello!

Urm? Add garlic to butter, a little olive oil - hey presto, Garlic Butter:-)

They key is a good slightly salted butter warmed, and crush the garlic well. Virgin olive oil. Stir in weel, return to fridge to set.

Don't forget to add a few drops of lemon juice. Just a few drops!

You can also add some chopped up parsley if you like.

Also don't use any kind of margarine stuff. Use real butter.

Hi Tina -

You must be able to get garlic butter at a gourmet shop in the states. Surely there are gourmet shops? Once you find some, give it a try and see if it's what you remember If not, try another one!

Or, perhaps you need to email Peter and see if he knows the secret ingredient of de Klos's garlic butter , maybe it's illegal in the states . .LOL. .

Not so funny, everything is illegal in the States! LOL! I guess what I was trying to ask was for the ingredients, I have never found such wonderful butter in the States, even at top restaurants, they have tried but it is almost as the butter has a different consistency then what is sold here in the States. Much creamier there, you know we have all these restrictions on our food here, etc. Just tast the difference in the cheese, right!
