If there’s a better breakfast than chewy toast thickly slathered with creamy butter, then I’ve yet to meet it. But it has to be good butter and Bellefield Butter is seriously good butter. Cultured for 8 days before churning, it comes in plain and pohutukawasmoked flavours. $10.50 for 100gm from Sabato and at Hamilton and Cambridge farmers markets. sabato.co.nz
