Super-Flaky Buttermilk Biscuits With Honey ButterMatt Taylor-Gross

This honey butter-topped biscuit recipe, from Jean-Paul Bourgeois, executive chef at Blue Smoke in New York City, earned first prize in the 2017 Charleston Food & Wine Festival’s Battle of the Biscuits. High-quality dairy—and high-fat dairy—are two of chef Bourgeois’ tricks to making them extra-special. Look for either high-fat buttermilk or a higher fat, European-style butter, which make for a more delicate, flakier texture.
