The Skinny on Lard
Thought you guys might enjoy this. Last night the wife and I ate at a restaurant in NYC called Bubby's. They only use organic produce and organic grass-fed beef and heritage breed pigs that are pasture raised locally.
When we paid the bill, they included the attached flier with the receipt. Explains why they only cook with lard and butter.
We didn't have the best dining experience, but we'd definitely give them another shot based on their values and practices.
There's a restaurant here called Incanto that specializes in offal. I really want to go, but at $20+ a plate it's a little out of my price range for now.
Pork fat is the BOMB! And that's all I have to say about that.
