The variety of domestic and foreign butters available today is immense. Of the hundred or so butters we sampled during the making of this issue, the following 30 impressed us with their distinctive flavors, textures, and colors. 30 Great Butters (With a nice photo gallery.

A sandwich loaf is a stacked party entree that looks like a cake. While rare today, the food was quite popular during the mid 20th century. To create a sandwich loaf, bread is cut horizontally and spread with layers of filling. Common fillings include egg salad, chicken salad, ham salad, tuna salad, and Cheez Whiz, but other fillings are possible, including mock egg salad made from tofu and peanut butter and jelly. White bread is usually used to create a sandwich loaf, but wheat is also acceptable. Sometimes white and wheat are used in alternating layers to create a ribbon effect. After the layers are assembled the entire loaf is coated with whipped cream cheese, which may be tinted with food coloring. Common garnishes are olives, parsley, grapes, and carrot curls.
