Bacon makes the world go round. For some people anyway. Over the past couple years bacon has made big strides in the food scene and continues to be a featured ingredient on menus around the world. It was about time Edmonton had a festival of its own to bring bacon lovers together, and it finally happened last Friday!
Hosted by Jiffy Lube, 10 different restaurants/vendors came together to make bacon-inspired dishes for attendees. There were numerous different takes on the classic BLT, traditional bacon slices, and bacon-laden desserts too. Top it all off with some fun giveaways and a "bacon and egg" inspired aerial performance and it ended up being a pretty fun night.
There were definitely hits and misses to the dishes, but I don't blame the vendors for having little prep room on site to keep everything fresh. Sending out a huge thanks to the organizers for inviting me down to check everything out! Perhaps I'll see you down at the festival next year if you missed it this time around :).
