Ahmed is on vacation, so he wanted y’all to hear his favorite episode: Ghee is having a moment right now. People call it a magic food that will melt your fat away. Kourtney Kardashian swears by it. Whole Foods is selling it. And the marketing language always comes back to how “ancient,” “pure” and “authentic” it is. And Ahmed can’t stop thinking about it. So this week, we’re spending the whole episode tackling one question: Why is this happening to ghee? We do a taste test with the brain trust, chat with Food and Fitness Director at SELF Magazine (and former BuzzFeeder) Sally Tamarkin, NYU Food Studies Department chair Krishnendu Ray, and Ahmed’s aunt Naheed Usmani to chew on it.
