I'm no expert, but as far as I've researched, butter, coconut oil and olive oil are the best things to cook with. So you're probably good, as long as there's no secret veg oil in the butter.

If you use coconut oil, stick to the unrefined, extra-virgin variety. "Deodorized" coconut oil is refined coconut oil, and subject to chemical cleaning and bleaching. If you don't like coconut flavor, your best bet is not to use it. :-) (more)

Coconut cream has more coconut solids in it. It's delicious to eat on its own, but not right for cooking. It melts, but it will make everything taste much more like coconuts than oil will, and it will probably mess with the texture of whatever you... (more)

Rice bran oil is popping up everywhere - is it a thumbs down from the Paleosphere? It is stable at high heat, but I suspect it has the same problems as 'seedy' oils. Avoid at all costs? I submit to the wisdom of the Jedi Masters.

Fats are on a continuum. Rice bran oil is about 33% PUFA, so it's better than something like soybean oil or corn oil but worse than beef tallow or coconut oil.

Roasting at 350 or 375 with olive oil is fine - you will not damage the olive oil. What you don't want to do with olive oil is fry with it. The direct heat of frying will (almost certainly) cause it to oxidize and be less awesome for you. This is... (more)
