Call us old-fashioned—acts of bravado and grandeur may win hearts in Hollywood—but real charm is easily (and equally romantically) found in everyday life. Take, for example, Clarified Butter—the distillation of creamy, smooth butter. Also known as Ghee, it brings richness, warmth and the purest butter intensity to whatever it graces—a slice of toast, a skillet of vegetables… a tongue. So if you’re looking to allure that special someone, might we suggest buttering them up with Ghee.
