Handcrafting William's Butter in Bolton
England

It's not everyday you get to watch a craftsman churning butter; however William Bromilow is not an everday man. I first came across him at a farmer's market, and was as taken by his character as his products: stunning handmade butters and freshly drawn buttermilk, being sold by a man in tweeds and with a good line in banter. It's all very deliberately local, small scale, and done at his pace.


Few producers still create dairy products like this by hand, but William takes cream from his brother's farm and turns it into liquid gold with a custom-made churn. Every pat is seasoned, shaped and packed by hand… and as you might expect, it's much in demand across the north west.

Oh, and he's also got a wicked sense of humour to boot. Cheers to William for being a good bloke and letting me make this panorama of him and his team in action: I happily put up with a rapid-fire exchange of dodgy jokes and enjoyed the whole experience.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
