In our Tuesday Night Bites series for FAT, we pair some of the best people from the Irish food industry with specialists, artists and scientists to take a deeper look at that delicious molecule, fat. Join us while we explore different aspects of fat through talks and workshops, while being offered delicious tastings and treats from some of the best Irish food produced today. The third instalment of the series is all about fat and preservation. Sheridan's Cheesemongers will bring some tasters of their delicious cheeses and talk about the science behind cheese production and how fat has allowed us to make nutritious food last longer. Irish ice swimmer Nuala Moore will also join us to share her perspectives of fat, and how it keeps sea-swimmers insulated at temperatures that would terrify most people. She'll also demonstrate that don’t need to be thin to be fit.
