Following slow food initiatives, French consumers formed the Amicale du Gras (Fat Friendly Association). Together, they encourage people to stop removing the fat from the meat they eat.
Here is an extract and translation of the AFP wire that was diffused by the French press:
“Enough of those people who remove the fat. Without fat , there is no taste ! ” said Frederick Grasser Hermé, president of the association .
The association of fat, which has some 80 members gathers meat eaters and lovers of crude fat.
“You must learn to eat fat the way you learn how to make love with the lights on “, says the association.
