Default In the Spirit of the Authentic and the Traditional, celebrate #NationalLardDay

In the Spirit of the Authentic and the Traditional, Healthy Fats Coalition Celebrates Dec. 8 as Second Annual #NationalLardDay

Under the auspices of the Healthy Fats Coalition ( – HFC) and ideally timed for the holidays, this Sunday, Dec. 8, will mark the second annual #NationalLardDay — a celebration of pure lard, a traditional, authentic animal fat that is now enjoying a resurgence within America’s food culture, in restaurants, fast food operations and home kitchens.

#NationalLardDay is the brainchild of the HFC, a group of like-minded organizations, companies and individuals that have developed an educational initiative dedicated to the proposition that healthy fats aren’t merely having a moment – they’re here to stay, as an essential part of the American diet. The HFC’s mission is simple: affirm that animal fats deserve a central place in kitchen, on the table and in the popular imagination.

“Fat is the soul of flavor,” wrote Nina Teicholz in her groundbreaking book, Big Fat Surprise (Simon & Schuster, 2014). “Food is tasteless and cooking nearly impossible without fat. Fat is essential in the kitchen to produce crispness and to thicken sauces. It is crucial in conveying flavors. It makes baked goods flaky, moist, and light. And fat has many other essential functions in cooking and baking.”

That's awesome.

I don't have any lard right now, because... well, I go through it pretty quickly whenever I render some. I have some bacon grease, I guess that counts. I'm looking forward to the next .99/lb sale on giant bone-in pork shoulders so I can get more pulled pork and the accompanying lard.
