Chef Ludo Lefebvre visits the Bordier Butter Factory

Butter blocks, butter blobs, butter rolls, butter balls, butter cones, butter wheels! Go behind the scenes of a French butter factory with chef Ludo Lefebvre in this subtitled bonus scene from the Anthony Bourdain-produced show Mind of a Chef:

Any French chef can tell you that the foundation of their cuisine is butter. So when we visited the Jean-Yves Bordier Butter factory in the Brittany region of France and had chef Ludo Lefebvre help in the process, it was nothing but pure amazement in his eyes. Le Beurre Bordier customizes it’s butter to the specifications of the chefs they send it to. Chef Ludo Lefebvre learns first hand how it’s done. Watch a full 5 minutes worth of butter heaven, you won’t believe it…
