1/6 Entier French Dining
Entier French Dining’s popular Kombu Butter with the perfect ratio of cured kelp to creamy butter adds a touch of umami to any dish. The Kombu Butter often outshines the French restaurant's other butters, but don't overlook the Chitose Strawberry Butter, Dried Fruit & Nut Butter, and Honey Mustard Butter. If you’re looking for more savoury Japanese-inspired offerings, know that Miso Nori Butter, Bonito Butter and Uni Butter are also on the menu. Purchase four of the aforementioned butters as part of Entier's Artisanal Butter Box.
2/6 Butter Bae
Fuelled by a firm belief in bringing the best out of ingredients, Samantha Tan Yen Yee of Butter Bae churns her butter in small batches without preservatives, using only premium and high-quality ingredients. Offering a large assortment of butters flavoured with kombu, truffle, miso, smokey herb, bacon and even caviar, Butter Bae allows customers to create renditions of their favourite fine dining dishes at home, using their butter as a finishing touch for sauces or roasts. But they're honestly good enough when spread on crusty bread and without fuss.

4/6 Sauce Lab
With his café affected by the first MCO in March 2020, Basil Tan came up with the idea of selling ready-to-go sauces to home cooks. With more than 10 years of experience in the food and beverage industry under his belt, Tan met with success. As of today, Sauce Lab has sold more than 15,000 jars of sauces. During Christmas 2020, the company launched their truffle-infused butter as a limited edition item. High demand has led to it becoming a permanent item on their menu. In the future, Sauce Lab plans to expand with a café featuring many of their sauces.
