About This Class

Hello and welcome to "Rendering Fat"! In this class, you will learn everything you need to know to render your own batch of fat. This class is for anyone who is interested in the ins and outs of fat. All levels are welcome!

If you've every wondered what the difference is between lard and tallow or what the correct term for rendered bear fat is, this class is for you (don't worry, no bears were harmed in the making of this video). We're also going to talk about the chemistry of fat and why some fats act differently from others. Next, it's off to the kitchen to render some fat and to make some ghee! Finally, we're going to talk about how to use and store the fat you've rendered.

It should be a lot of fun and super interesting. Hope you join us!
