James admitted the response to his cookbook was “overwhelming” and he had to temporarily go off social media because he was inundated with messages.

“The response has been overwhelming,” he said. “Chefs treat butter like olive oil, and for me it has always been about food: delicious food. You can’t produce good quality food with margarine, it sucks. Do we need to be lectured? Can we just enjoy it for what it is?

Butter is a natural ingredient. I have spent my entire career using butter with no compromise and no substitute, mainly because there is none. We should not take butter for granted.

“It’s such an essential part of our food lives around the world that it’s a wonder so many more haven’t written books about it sooner. The butter is unique and natural, and we don’t have to kill an animal to produce it.’

James and his team wrote the book in 21 days during the Covid-19 lockdown, photographing the plates on the floor of their Hampshire home.
