Animal Fats | November 29, 2016

#TasteMap - Los Angeles Edition

#TasteMap - Los Angeles Edition

Words are wonderful things, but they obviously can’t convey sensations like taste and flavor and texture.  While the conversation about the health benefits of any given food or ingredient is continuous – and, indeed, will probably lack an endpoint in any of our lifetimes — most of us have a pretty fair idea of what tastes good (even if we can’t always say why).

We believe the best way to understand how lard and beef tallow dramatically improve the taste of food is to simply try dishes prepared with these healthy animal fats.  Toward that end, we’ve compiled a running list of establishments where you can let your palette make the call.

We’re starting at home, in Los Angeles, but eventually we will include establishments all around the U.S. If you’ve a favorite restaurant that puts lard or beef tallow on the menu (or just in some of its prize dishes), drop us an email at and we will gladly add it to our listing. Or you can post an image or link to the eatery via Twitter/Instagram/Pinterest, etc with the hashtag #LardOnTheMenu or #TallowOnTheMenu and we will be sure to include those as well!

And remember to praise the lard.
