Glorify your life, or just add butter

2019-20 ASDA Editor-in-Chief Jeannie Binder, Texas-Houston ’21, writes: “Earlier this year, I learned a new French cooking term: monter au beurre. It essentially means to finish a dish with a little melted butter right at the end of cooking. You might whisk a cold knob of butter into a sauce to pour over a beautifully cooked piece of fish or spoon some melted butter over a steaming bowl of lentils. This final step gives the dish in question a remarkable texture and flavor that I haven’t been able to achieve with any other method. After I tried this technique a few times, I fell so in love with it that my motto for the year became ‘2019: Monter au Beurre.’ 

“Adding butter to everything you eat probably isn’t the advice you were expecting to receive in the wellness edition of Contour.”

In the annual wellness issue, we’re exploring the relationship between dentistry and creativity, chatting with some dental yogis and organizing our academic lives. Learn more about better managing your relationships and your ergonomics, too.
