• Umami Grana Padano Seasoning


    Yield: 8 Portions

    • Ingredients
    • Browned butter solids (from 2 lbs. butter, clarified)
      ¼ cup
    • Grana Padano, grated fine
      ¾ cup
    • Porcini powder
      3 Tbsp.
    • Salt
      2 Tbsp.
    • Turmeric 1 tsp.
      1 tsp.
    • Old Bay Seasoning
      2 tsp.
    • Juniper berries, ground
      1 Tbsp.


    1. Clarify 2 pounds of butter, reserving the butter solids. Continue to cook the solids until they turn a deep golden brown and they have developed a nutty aroma. Drain any excess butter from the browned butter solids.
    2. Add the remaining ingredients to the solids and stir together. Spread onto a cookie sheet and bake in a 300°F oven for 1-2 minutes to help the flavors blend. Allow this mixture to cool completely and then grind it fine in a spice grinder.
    3. Sprinkle this Grana Padano Umami Seasoning onto freshly fried gaufrette potatoes, or pop corn for a savory treat.
