Milk: The Surprising Story of Milk Through the Ages
Anne Mendelson

Part cookbook—with more than 120 enticing recipes—part culinary history, part inquiry into the evolution of an industry, Milk is a one-of-a-kind book that will forever change the way we think about dairy products.

I first found out about this book because of its beautiful cover design. I know you are not supposed to Judge a Book by it's Cover, but it is often what makes me take a look inside. I'm glad I did with Milk. It is an interesting read. She has lots of interesting butter information and butter recipes.
