    BBC Radio 4's You and Yours programme today featured a piece on butter making a comeback. (I personally consumed margarine due to being a vegan, but now use coconut oil.)
    The item starts at 13.38 and features Dr Aseem Malhotra, a well-known fat (in food!) enthusiast.

    Rather bemused by the chef enthusing about the Maillard reaction though, which I believe is NOT a good thing.

    Reminds me of a nutritionist who suggested I use margarine instead of butter because "it has vitamin A and D added!" He had no clue that those were added to margarine in an attempt to mimic the vitamin content in butter :p

    Every apple pie crust should be made with lard instead of butter or shortening.
