Welcome to Splendid Table Selects, our spin-off podcast that highlights interviews and stories that we find particularly important to our larger discussions about food. This episode, we're focusing on fat. Fat is one of those ingredients that tends to get a pretty bad rap, but it really shouldn't. Fat is essentially responsible for the flavor, appearance and texture of many of the dishes we love to cook and eat. Celebrity chef Andrew Zimmern defends fat. He says it’s not an evil word; it’s a vastly overlooked and underappreciated ingredient. He joined his friend, food writer Michael Ruhlman, for a conversation about their mutual love of fat.
Thanks to our presenting sponsor Bob’s Red Mill for their support of this Splendid Table Selects podcast series.
