It’s a widely accepted fact that butter is bread's best friend. But when that butter is softened and whipped with a drizzle of honey and flakes of briny sea salt, smearing a slice becomes an act of sheer decadence. Make that bread an eggy loaf of homemade challah dusted with za’atar and sesame seeds, and there’s practically nothing tastier.
