@roger,
It reminds me of a time when I got my head bitten off on A2K, when I mentioned an article I'd read regarding the dangers of cooking with olive oil.
Since then I've seen several other bits and pieces that say the same thing.

Extra Virgin Olive oil seems to have a low smoking point, and should not be used for frying etc., for health reasons. Other oils with higher smoking points should be used.

I think it is more generally accepted now, but back then I was definitely not flavour of the month for mentioning it.

@Setanta,
Here's one that caught my attention, Set.

If you love bacon sandwiches, look the other way.....

Wait . . . a bacon sammich knocks a half hour off my life? I go a few months i could do without. I eat nothing but butter, no "spreads" at all. Of course, i don't eat it in moderation, but what the hell. Considering all the drugs and alcohol i used to put in my body, some bacon and some butter hardly matters.

@Setanta,
Secretly, I think that 99% of blokes think the same way.


Not me, of course.

@Lordyaswas,
Mr Stillwater recommended sunflower (NOT safflower) oil for cooking. I've been using it ever since.

You do remember Mr. Stillwater, don't you.

@roger,
Here, it is more or less know that the leading discounters (Aldi, Lidl) sell olive oil below the acquisition price.
But even at supermarkets, you get highest quality olive oils for a rather decent price.

@Lordyaswas,
Imagine trying a Knock Knock joke with a German.

Walter: Knock Knock

Roger: Who's there?

Walter: Walter

Roger: Walter who?

Walter: Walter Hinteler


It was a joke, Walt.

I believe lard is best for frying. But the hype against lard has my wife afraid of it, so I use other stuff.

@edgarblythe,
The real Belgian "French fries" are done with suet.

You get lard here at the butcher's. (And a couple of 'factory manufactured' varieties in any supermarket.)

I was recently slightly tsk tsked here for saying I didn't cook with olive oil.

I guess I look too mean to bite.

@ehBeth,
I'm glad, ¡Camarero, camarero! only translates to "Walter, Walter!" with a typo.
