In interviews about my blog/book, 2 of the questions I get asked the most are: 1) When/why did the recent bacon trend start? 2) Is ‘baconmania’ ever going to end? This Businessweek article does a better job of breaking it down than any other article that has attempted to decode the ‘bacon trend’ in the past couple years. And the “publishers handed out bacon book deals” line made me LOL.
Happy #InternationalBaconDay. Get out there and do bacon proud today. (at Downtown Phoenix Public Market)
The Bacontarian sandwich at Oven and Vine in Phoenix: generous bacon, greens, vine ripe tomatoes, and zesty jalapeño remoulade.
Pâté, South Africa style: kudu, brandied prunes, pistachio nuts, bacon (at Neighbourgoods Market Johannesburg).
Breakfast bacon on safari is pretty much the best way to enjoy bacon (at Thakadu River Camp, Madikwe Game Reserve, South Africa).
There is a Bacon Pop Up Bar in Franschhoek, South Africa. And unfortunately it’s closed for the 2 days I’m in wine country!!!
I just ate one of the most aggressively awesome BLT (+egg) sandwiches at The Dogs Bollocks in Cape Town.
Bacon wrapped dates with spicy Italian sausage and gorgonzola crema at Giada Vegas. Great combo of spicy, smoky, and sweet flavors.
