Zi's in the buttermilk

On a beautiful fall morning, Chef Zi and his Auntie Fi Zi Re made butter the old-fashioned way -- with a carton of cream, a food processor and laptop open to these instructions from the Food Network's Tyler Florence.

It was fun to make. It was a surprise to see inside the food processor, changing into butter from whipped cream. It sounded like it was popping, like a vrum vrum vrum sound. It tasted wuuuunderrrrful (trilled R). It took 5 minutes. (The butter) looked like popcorn coming out of a train (moved arms in small circles to demonstrate the rods that move a steam locomotive's wheels.)

-- Chef Zi

Auntie Fi and the Chef's cousin Chef Re used the remaining buttermilk to make wuuuuuunderrrful berry scones. More on that in a future guest blog.
