Fat Equals Flavor, Or Does It?
Chef Paul Finney of October Kitchen and a Certified Health Coach dives into the debate.
Does fat truly equal flavor? What is the flavor of fat? Is fat really bad for us?
Good fats for health and vitality. WE will have recipe demonstrations, tastings and melt down the truth behind the flavorful world of fats! From juicy steaks to avocado ice cream, fat plays an important and deliciously defining role in our food.
Join us on May 23rd at 6:30PM to explore the intersection of flavor, fat, food and nutrition.
