So, what is matières grasse?

Matieres grasses, also known as "fats" in English, are an essential ingredient in many types of cuisine. These substances are commonly derived from animal sources, such as butter, lard, or tallow, but can also be found in plant-based products like coconut oil and avocado. Matieres grasses play a crucial role in food preparation, providing flavor, texture, and moisture to dishes. While excessive consumption of fats can lead to health problems, moderate amounts are necessary for proper bodily function. In the culinary world, matieres grasses are revered for their ability to transform even the simplest of ingredients into a delicious and satisfying meal.
