Can you ever have enough bacon?
Over 160 Chicago chefs will be cooking up nearly 8,000 pounds of bacon as they prepare signature dishes for Baconfest Chicago 2014 (April 25 & 26 at UIC Forum). Dishes range from savory to the sublime, including:
- The Bad Apple's Baconnoli - Bacon, banana, and Bellwether Jersey Cow ricotta-filled canolli with bacon peanut caramel and powdered bacon sugar.
- Untitled's The All In - Bacon dashi soup dumpling and bacon rabbit sausage with a spicy bacon mustard.
- Glazed and Infused's Apple Bacon Pineapple Fritter
- The Dawson's The Featherweight - Bacon maple donut bread pudding sandwich, with allspice confit face bacon and bourbon bacon sabayon.
Go to the Baconfest Chicago website for the entire menu.
The Saturday lunch and dinner sessions are sold out, but a limited number of VIP tickets for Friday's session are available via Eventbrite.
You can also enjoy some of these featured bacon dishes during Bacon Month's Charity Dine-Around; 34 restaurants are putting their bacon dishes on the menu and donating a portion of the proceeds to Baconfest's charity partner, the Greater Chicago Food Depository.
