About this class
Nick, the founder of Rude Health will be giving an educational talk about fats / ghee and doing a demonstration of how to make it. Everyone will leave with a stunning Le Parfait jar of ghee to take home. There will also be some delicious biodynamic wine / charcuterie for people to snack on throughout!
Against popular belief, ghee is more than just clarified butter. Ghee is clarified butter that has been heated at a higher temperature and for longer, which not only separates or evaporates the milk proteins but drives off most of the water too. Ghee has a higher smoke point, between 200-260 degrees, making it a very useful animal fat, capable of withstanding high cooking temperatures, and with a naturally very long shelf life too.
Chilled ghee easily keeps for one year or more. In India, where ghee originated, you can find aged ghee that is over 100 years old. Ageing ghee is said to increase its nutritional and healing powers. Learn to separate water and whey from butter and be ghee-ful and gleeful!

Rude Health was founded in London in 2005 by Nick and Camilla Barnard.
They’re renowned for their innovative, delicious and nourishing food and drinks, winning scores of awards for taste and ethical standards. Nick’s the leading voice of Rude Health rants, and is well-known for his infectious enthusiasm for traditional food and drinks. In 2013, he was crowned World Speciality Porridge Champion in a continuing quest for the Golden Spurtle. Beyond the kitchen, Nick also helps out at Tablehurst and Plaw Hatch biodynamic community farms, where he is found as often as possible, happy as a pig in a trough of acorns.
Rude Health only uses the kind of ingredients you’d have in your own kitchen – nothing artificial, nothing refined. They source our ingredients from fields, orchards and vines – not laboratories. They think food should be made out of food – not thickeners, preservatives, colourings, flavourings and other additives. The proof is in the taste, try it for yourself. When you’ve got food this good inside you, you’ll be up for anything.
Also, for those of you that didn't know, Rude Health just launched a fabulous new cafe in Fulham (one minute from Putney Bridge station). Some Obbyists have been already and reported great things but if you don't believe us, how about this for a review:
"Housed in the historic former home of H J Mulliner & Co, the Rolls Royce and Bentley coach builder, the Café is an upbeat daytime eatery that celebrates positive eating. Rude Health prides itself on producing foods and drinks that only use ingredients people would find in their own kitchens. The same applies to everything that is made and served from the Cafe’s kitchen – nothing fake, nothing artificial.” - About Time
