The Big Book of Bacon

Nov 25, 2014

Category: Food

It’s slightly surprising that something called The Big Book of Bacon: Savory Flirtations, Dalliances, and Indulgences with the Underbelly of the Pig wasn’t written by a man. But then again, maybe it isn’t: We imagine most male bacon lovers would have hands too greasy for any keyboard.

So it’s author Jennifer L.S. Pearsallto to the rescue with this 288-page ode to our favorite savory meat, as she explores its ability to make everything better, from a hamburger to a pie crust. Pearsallto offers up tons of ways to get more bacon into your life, whether it’s an appetizer, dessert or a “baconated” vegetable. If there’s a bacon aficionado on your shopping list, we figure a pack of Oscar Meyer and this book will be enough for their stocking. [Purchase]
