Kerrygold Irish butter is pretty ordinary as butter goes IMO and I much prefer the taste of President unsalted French butter from Normandy. Kerrygold is not a gourmet/premium brand in the UK. Butter can burn but if you add a little olive oil, it should be fine.
Ghee is amaaaazing. Like melted Cornish clotted cream (and not the bottled stuff available in US as that tastes nothing like real clotted cream). I buy mine from Spices of India as they have the manufacturers of Khanum ghee do their batches without ethyl butyrate and it's the only ghee I can find without that in the UK.
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
