Author promotes healthy fat at New Haven library

NEW HAVEN — New Haven Community Library will host local and nationally acclaimed author Andrea Chesman on Thursday, Jan. 31, at 7 p.m. Chesman’s prolific work includes many classic and well-loved cookbooks. In her latest book, “The Fat Kitchen: How to Render, Cure & Cook with Lard, Tallow & Poultry Fat,” she explores the benefits of cooking with animal fats.
“Lard, tallow (from beef, sheep or goats), chicken fat, duck fat, and goose fat — are an intrinsic part of nose-to-tail eating. These fats yield superior texture in baked goods, add richness to savory dishes, and are healthier to eat than many have been taught — after all, humans evolved eating these fats.” Chesman explains.
She will discuss “the healthfulness of animal fats vs. vegetable seed oils, explain where to buy or how to render these fats, consider how to adapt recipes to utilize them, and finally share some samples of food that showcase using animal fats to their best advantage”.
Come to this educational — and tasty — evening. Books will be available for purchase. For further information please contact Deborah at the library at 802-453-4015.
