Smooth as B-U-T-T-E-R Milk!

Rediscovering an old-fashioned treat

If the food you served on your kitchen table were to star in a film, the cast would probably not be all that surprising.

  • Steak: lean, dark and juicy- obviously the romantic lead.
  • Chicken: any way you dress it- the comic relief…
  • And tofu: the shape-shifting villain willing to take on multiple forms…

But nowhere in the script is there a role for buttermilk. Unless that film is made by Joe York, starring Tennessee farmer Earl Cruze. Cruze and his buttermilk are the stars of York's documentary "Buttermilk: It Can Help," screening at this year's NYC Food Film Festival.

Takeaway producer Jesse Baker went to the opening night of the festival to gauge New Yorkers' response to Cruze and his buttermilk.
