What’s better than eating bacon on a Sunday morning? I’ll tell you what is… Eating 16 bacon dishes on a Sunday morning in the environs of one of the best Farmers’ markets in the city.
Last Sunday I was honoured to be be invited to judge the third annual Leslieville Farmers’ Market Baconfest: The Return Of The Brined Pork Belly.
Alongside Trevor Benson of the Ontario Culinary Tourism Alliance, Shucker extraordinaire Patrick McMurray of The Ceili Cottage, and culinary travel blogger Ayngelina Brogan of Bacon Is Magic, I spent a delightful couple of hours tasting bacon themed dishes from Mr. Spinners Functional Foods, Waffle Bar, Ying Ying Soy Foods, Hooked Inc, Le Papillon On the Park, The County General Riverside, Voulez Vous Cafe, Eastside Social, Rashers, Glas Wine Bar, Skin + Bones Wine Bar, Be Good Gelato, Sweet Sammies, and Earth and City.
Below you’ll find a pictorial account of the day’s extremely bacony proceedings.
Edinburgh-born/Toronto-based Sommelier, consultant, writer, judge, and educator Jamie Drummond is the Director of Programs/Editor of Good Food Revolution… And that was a hell of a lot of bacon.
