I believe that the queen guinevere is a bleached flour. They admit that their unbleached will give different results, because the bleaching actually improves cake flour. It's great that they developed the unbleached option.

My bad. Thanks for the correction. It is bleached.

When I was traveling through the northwest there was a butter I absolutely loved. It was on every table in every restaurant, so it must be pretty common. Little squares wrapped in foil (I think gold -- but it's been 15 years or so). It was delicious. I wonder what the brand was (just curiousity, I buy local, after all, I'm in dairy country). If I lived in Oregon/Washington (and I think even northernmost California) I would only buy that one brand. And I'm not a huge butter person.

I usually buy whichever butter is on special. All the butter in Quebec is good. It contains cream and salt, if it is salted butter. It sometimes has carotene for colour. If I want really, really good butter, I buy organic butter or Lactantia unsalted cultured butter. It also contains a bacterial culture. OMG, that is yummy butter.

I think maybe the butter Claire is describing could be Darigold it's a big time Washington State brand
We like Tillamook too, but it hasn't been available as long.

Looked for a photo, because I remember those little gold foil packets too! I could only find the little plastic cups with gold foil tops ( because we really need to use more plastic :( sheesh!). Anyway I am still sure it's Darigold it's just cream and salt. We have contented cows out here so maybe that's what makes it taste so good. Can't say as I have ever had any bad tasting butter ;) yum
