pork in my belly!
adam signed up for the event first, then i got a little competitive and signed up to compete too. lastly, linda, a friend of ours wanted to help, so she joined forces with adam.
linda & adam experimented with a few options, even practiced on a very delicious bacon bahn mi! their final recipe proved to be a winner, bacon lolipops! carmelized bacon with garlic & red pepper wrapped around a piece of granny smith apple, held together with a lolipop stick. they won judge’s choice for ‘sweet tooth’ 🙂
i tested a few dishes last week and had a very solid bacon cheese soup. i was really happy with the recipe, but day of, it didn’t turn out exactly as planned, still good, but not a winner. not to mention one pot burned beyond recovery, so i ran a little short and couldn’t serve the last 25 people or so. 😦
VERY fun event, lots of cool people, great turn out and amazing food. more pictures to come from the nikon, but here’s a preview.
there were 20 dishes, here a sample of the line up:
- bacon crusted pork loin
- double happiness cacon pot dtickers
- pork belly burritos and bacon boxes
- bacon avocado tartlets with bacon brittle
- bacon jam & ravioli
