When you’ve got home-made sourdough and freshly rendered lard, there’s nothing more divine than putting them together in a pan. . My delicious lunch: Slices of sweet potato and spelt bread fried in lard made from @valledelsasso’s back fat, accompanied by local mushrooms and an egg with ample black pepper. . For years, after losing half my body weight, I was terrified of saturated fat. When I finally had the courage to embrace it, my weight maintenance issues just melted away. . I am so grateful to all that ancestral food techniques have given me and for how they taste every day.
