As Friday’s first #NationalBeefTallowDay approaches, Coast Packing Company and Tasti Burger will mark #FRYdayThe13th with a completely yummy French fry “Taste the Difference” experience, on stage at the Orange County Fair.
At the Fair, attendees will sample French fries prepared with beef tallow and peanut oil, and—guided by Coast Packing Corporate Chef Ernie Miller and Tasti Burger’s Lori Southerlend—explore the delights, nuances and flavor profiles of each. Tasti Burger, family-owned for 44 years and a fixture on the Southern California fair circuit, offers the only fresh made-to-order burgers on the Fairgrounds. The fun starts at 6 p.m. on the main stage of the Culinary Showcase, in the OC Promenade.
An initiative of The Healthy Fats Coalition, #NationalBeefTallowDay, Friday, June 13, is a celebration of a traditional healthy animal fat—pure beef tallow shortening—that is now enjoying a resurgence within America’s food culture, in restaurants, fast food operations and home kitchens.
