Lard, Tallow, Schmaltz: New Cookbook Makes The Case For Animal Fat

Nov 12, 2018

Animal fats like lard, tallow or schmaltz have been used in cooking for centuries, but have fallen out of favor more recently, mostly for health reasons.

Andrea Chesman is the author of about 20 cookbooks. Her latest is The Fat Kitchen: How to Render, Cure, and Cook with Lard, Tallow, and Poultry Fat.
