Using lard in cooking dates at least as far back as the 1300s. Rediscovered along with other healthful animal fats in the 1990s, lard is once again embraced by chefs, dieticians and enlightened health care professionals. Lard contains 54 percent less saturated fat than butter and some plant-derived fats. "Lard: The Lost Art of Cooking with Your Grandmother’s Secret Ingredients"offers you the opportunity to cook like your grandmother, while incorporating good animal fat into your diet once again.

One hundred and fifty recipes gathered from more than 100 years of GRIT magazine are included in this cookbook. You’ll find recipes for Grandma’s Homemade Biscuits along with Henrietta's Fried Chicken, Sunshine Shortcake, Pie Crust and Homemade Flour Tortillas.

Don’t be afraid to bring a little lard back to your table. Your taste buds will be glad you did.
