A Friday Giveaway: 20 Pepe Saya butter wheels!

Posted on June 21st, 2013

Oh it’s been a big week here in the office. My. Oh. But it’ s Friggen Friday…why don’t we ram things up with a Nice Thing to Giveaway. This time, Pierre Issa of Pepe Saya artisan butter has generously donated:

20 handcrafted 225 gram butter wheels

 

Pierre is great. He puts the Pepe in the Saya. And my fridge always has one of his wheels in my dairy tray. The stuff is good enough to eat straight with some rock salt (anyone else do this??). He and I have crossed paths a few times lately, most recently at the TedX Sydney event (which you can catch up on here if you missed me leading a carving up of a 500kg grass-fed Wagyu carcass in the forecourt of the Opera House). I love his crafty passion which he makes with his family by his side. His dad makes the round metal moulds that give the butter its distinctive shape, while all of the staff wear hats made by his mum.

Pepe Saya butter is made from 100 per cent local ingredients: single origin cream from jersey cows in Allansford, Victoria or Picton, New South Wales, and locally sourced sea salt, along with Murray River pink salt. “We sour the cream down, we churn it, wash it with filtered water, knead it, get the water out, pack it and label it. That’s it. That’s butter,” Pierre says.

Real and simple.

We thought you could use some of his butter (they also make ghee, buttermilk, crème fraiche and mascarpone) to make a few of the recipes in my I Quit Sugar Chocolate Cookbook. Like the Raspberry Ripple pictured above, where a good, salty butter is highly recommended.

    Quitting sugar has not only made me more alert and my skin pretty much flawless (yay!), but I have chronic inflammations that leave me with body aches as if I had the flu. Since quitting sugar and wheat I have been so much better! Thank you Sarah! xx

    my daughter who is in France at the moment studying said one of the salads there is to take radishes, and add butter and salt. She must mean butter like this, because it tastes horrible with store bought butter!

    I hadn’t heard of Pepe Saya, but it’s great to know there are people like Pierre out there, passionate about sourcing the best ingredients and perfecting the process to create a high quality product. I bet his butter tastes amazing!

    This was the little push I needed to grab your ebook, Sarah. Looking forward to trying out your recipes. I have known of you since your time at Cosmo and as a 24 year old Canberra girl, I think you’re a wonderful role model and your journey to health has fuelled my determination to be healthy, so thank you xx

    I have been wanting to purchase this book for some time – and now is perfect with this giveaway, as I’ve also been dying to try the Pepe Saya products (hard to find in my area).

    Just purchased the ebook… however, it downloaded as a .rar file type, which I cannot open on my mac… I was expecting a pdf. Could you please help? I didn’t receive a pdf via email either…

    Keep up the awesome work Sarah!

    Ta! xo

    So I’ve just bought the chocolate book. I’ve been sugar-free for 2 months (nearly 3 – I’m counting!). I love cooking and baking so its been really interesting to review recipes. My weekend habit is now to try a new sugar-free recipe. Making my own chocolate is a challenge I am looking forward to!
    Thanks for the inspiration.

    I’m having the same trouble as Amy above – I thought it was a PDF too and can’t download to my iPad ! Argh please help ! Xxx

    If you double-click on the RAR file it should open with Stuffit Expander. A new file will appear and the pdf is in there.

    I bought Sarah’s first book and absolutely love it. It helped me decide to quit sugar in my own life. I am only on day 5, struggling a little but determined to get over the sugar addiction and have a better quality of life. Yesterday I bought I quit sugar chocolate cookbook. All I can say is WOW!

    Just caught the Qantas A380 to LA and noticed Pepe’s butter was served on board! it was the first time I’ve tried it, WOW it’s the best I’ve ever tasted. Where can I buy it in Sydney?
    Already have the new chocolate book, love Sarah’s fudge bites with chia, I used amaranth puffs instead, makes for an interesting texture. The recipe is my favourite and a good way to get maca and protein powder into your day. I’ve renamed them ‘mojo magnets’.

    Love your chocolate, my kids especially love the Weetbix milk chocolate slice in their lunch box :) Been sugar free for over three months and it’s the clearest my mind has been in years :) PS I love to eat butter cut straight from the block nomnom

    I have just bought the Chocolate Cookbook! And I really hope I win that butter because it sounds amazing!!! But I know I will end up buying it anyway.

    So I tried doing the 8 week program (bought the book when it first came out) but I found that it was a big struggle for me. I’ve learned so many good things about food, but there are the moments when my logic switches off and go ahead and eat that horribly sugary treat. But I am on the second day of giving IQS a go and I am excited. It is not just about 8 weeks, it is about a true change in my relationship with food and the health of my body.

    Thanks Sarah for your blog. Its a reminder to me to care for myself and to think outside the box.

    LOVED this e-book. I have been suffering undiagnosed AI since I was a kid. I’m now 30 and thanks to people such as yourself, have figured out a diet and lifestyle that is really working for me. Thank you!
