Butter Board


Yes, you heard correctly, it’s butter on a board. Thank you TikTok for influencing me to go down this slippery rabbit hole. Perfect for an opening act for your guest before you get going on mains. It’s so delicious, try not to eat the whole thing on your own!

Prep time: 10 mins | Serves 10

What you will need:

  • Wooden board for serving
  • Baking paper
  • Spatula
  • 250gm room temperature butter
  • 4 teaspoons crispy chilli oil
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • Sprinkle of salt
  • 7-10 Chive sprigs chopped
  • Sourdough bread



  • Start by laying your baking paper on top of your board
  • Spatula the butter on top of the baking paper so it appears uneven, like little mountains across the board
  • Now let the creation begin, spoon your crispy chilli oil in 4 blobs across the butter, let some of the oil run wild, and let it drip across the butter to fill in the gaps.
  • Drizzle your honey on top. This step is essential (it’s way better with the honey!)
  • Sprinkle some salt to taste
  • Add your chopped chives
  • Grab (run don’t walk) your sliced sourdough and knife some of your butter board onto the bread
