Serve Up a Bacon Board at Your House!

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014

Zingerman’s 5th Annual Camp Bacon is coming up! In honor of the fun, how about cooking up a Bacon Board? Here’s a way to make bacon eating as educational as it is enjoyable! The way we see it, if everything is better with bacon, we could make everything four or five times better by serving four or five different bacons every time we entertain.

If you’re having company for brunch why not buy a range of different bacons and let your guests experience their respective flavors—tasting one bacon next to another is incredibly interesting and delicious. Even for lunch, why not cook up a couple different bacons—let your kids sample and compare. It’s a great way to practice adjectives (“What do you think each bacon tastes like?”), geography (“Where does this bacon come from?”), etc. It works for cheese, right? We’re all used to serving four or five cheeses on a cheese board so that our guests can taste, compare and enjoy the diversity of flavors and textures. Why not take the same tack for bacon?
