For The Love of Bacon

I left the event with a stuffed tummy and stuffed goody bag. I walked away with a Peace, Love, Bacon t-shirt and water bottle courtesy of the Illinois Pork producers.

A Garden Party at Rick Bayless' House

By Judy Wu

I was using Rick Bayless' restroom, I mused, staring up at the ceiling window that was projecting a heavenly beacon of light upon my less-than-angelic duties. I could barely distinguish Rick's faint murmurs through the orange walls, something about how...
