Hey, since it's all things in moderation, no matter what the fat, why not moderate with what tastes good. I've found a local source for very nice leaf lard. Still get duck fat on-line, and chicken fat just comes with the cooking here. And those more solid fats like coconut and lard do so much better for biscuits and pastries.

Absolutely impossible , mixing meat and fish is not kosher, thus would not have been done
