The speaker, Dr Warren Grubb is a microbiologist and an Emeritus Professor at
Curtin University will be taking the talk on “Oils Aint Oils”.
Today there is a plethora of vegetable oils available for cooking and adding to dishes, with claims being made that these are more healthy than fats. However, there are conflicting claims made about the virtues of some oils over others. This talk will analyse the constituents and characteristics of oils and fats, and their impact on our health, so more informed decisions can be made when choosing which to use.
The recipe demonstration and tastings will explore a variety of ways good fats can be incorporated into our diet. Tasty ways of eating, without the need for adding processed oils will be discussed. Ideas for adapting recipes to reduce or eliminate processed oils will also be explored.
