BACONFEST...April 10th

March 03 2010 - 10:08 AM

Imagine, an entire festival devoted to Bacon! Pigfection will be a reality on April 10th in Logan Square at Baconfest. Let’s face it… Bacon is popular for good reasons, it’s fun to eat and a wonderful addition to almost any meal. Even my Jewish boyfriend can’t get enough crispy swine. A few other points in Bacon’s favor-it’s natural, it’s delicious, and it’s a pretty utilitarian food. Bacon is now being featured on a donut at Voodoo Donut  in Oregon. The Maple Bacon Bar is a donut with maple frosting and bacon pieces on top. In Chicago, Vosges Chocolate  is home of the Mo’s Bacon Chocolate Bar.

Many of the chefs and food companies that are part of our Chicagofoodies online community are  featured at BACONFEST! Tickets go on sale at noon on March 4th for $45 each.
