On Sunday March 14 at Emo’s Austin will get piggy with it at the Bacon Takedown. I love all things pork but bacon holds an especially high place both in my heart and in my cholesterol level. Bacon and cured things in general have been very popular recently, showing up in savory as well as sweet dishes. Since I am a pastry chef, I must go with the sweet side of things and plan to enter with my Bacon Toffee. I will post the recipe as soon as the contest is over. Please come out and vote for me. And try not to o.d. on the bacon.
