Our Story

I am Lindsay Rose creator of Lindsay’s Gourmet Compound Butter. 

My Compound Butter business came to me by a quirk of fate. After a life changing experience a few years ago I found therapy through cooking. Cooking became my passion. At first I was just cooking for myself but quickly discovered this delicious food could be shared with family and friends. This sharing caught on quickly and I started providing meals and catering special events for them. Loved it! I was in the kitchen daily and discovered a way to create restaurant quality meals, quickly and simply. I made several flavours of Compound Butter and stored them in my freezer to have them readily on hand. When it was time to create a dish I simply sliced off a pat of one of the butters with a hot knife, let it come to room temperature and added it to my dish! My family and friends started referring to my butters as ‘Lindsay’s Secret Sauce’. Made me so proud!

Family and friends encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone and introduce the Compound Butter logs to Niagara Region in 2015. Challenging but I found the venue I felt most comfortable with – The Market @ the Village, Niagara-on-the-Lake. A seasonal farmers’ market. A wonderful decision – so much so I continue to join the group each season. My flavours are embraced not only for their delicious taste and ease of use but for their unique rustic packaging too! The community embraced me and I am embracing my community. Sourcing my products and ingredients locally wherever possible.

I love participating in Artisanal Events, Markets and Meet the Maker Tastings throughout the year. It gives me so much pleasure introducing Lindsay’s Gourmet Compound Butter to busy Moms and Dads who do not have the time to prepare flavourable meals and to people who want to entertain with delightful dishes without spending all their time in the kitchen. Have a look at our Upcoming Events and come by to see us!

In 2017 I was honoured to have been selected as a finalist for the Outstanding New Business Award at the Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce – Niagara Business Achievement Awards. And, in addition I won 2nd prize with The Pen’s Mind Your Own Business contest. Enjoyed operating a kiosk at The Pen for two weeks.
