Product description


"Pork, poultry, beef, butter: here is a delicious ode to fat in its many forms and functions. From bacon baklava to beurre blanc, Jennifer McLagan proves that all fat is not created equal, and that eating healthfully should not be an exercise in self-denial."
-Dan Barber, chef and co-owner of Blue Hill Restaurant

"Like cars, we all need lubrication, except ours is ideally taken in the form of pork fat. Fat is where the flavor lies. What a treat this book is-a proper celebration of the good bits."
-Fergus Henderson, author of The Whole Beast

"I love this book! There are very few cookbooks published today that add something truly new and distinctive to the literature of food and cooking. Jennifer McLagan's Fat is smart and thoughtful-it ultimately asks us to understand our food better."
-Michael Ruhlman, coauthor of Charcuterie

"Hurrah! Jennifer McLagan joins the charge to restore honest-to-goodness fat to its rightful place in our kitchens and culture, and she does so intelligently, insightfully, and deliciously. Her new book, Fat, is a must in any serious cook's library."
-Molly Stevens, author of All About Braising


Duck fat. Caul fat. Leaf lard. Bacon. Ghee. Suet. Schmaltz. Cracklings. Jennifer McLagan knows and loves cooking fat, and you'll remember that you do too once you get a taste of her lusty, food-positive writing and sophisticated comfort food recipes. Fat is hot, as public consciousness shifts away from fatphobia, and foodies embrace high-quality fats like lardo and artisanal butters. Sumptuous food photos throughout make for a plump, juicy, satisfying read for food lovers.
