New Book: Bacon: A Love Story, a Salty Survey of Everybody`s Favorite Meat

New Book: Bacon: A Love Story, a Salty Survey of Everybody`s Favorite Meat

By Rocco Loosbrock

Recently Heather Lauer launched a new book called Bacon: A Love Story, a Salty Survey of Everybody`s Favorite Meat in which she discusses America`s love affair with bacon!  She tell us that everything from cooking shows, to restaurant menus, to party snacks, to food blogs, it seems like bacon is getting more buzz than ever. In recent years, bacon has transcended its simple categorization as a salty piece of pork belly, and has now achieved bonafide icon status as "the rock star of all meats." But times were not always so swine-y.  After surviving years on the back burner during the cholesterol-conscious `90s, the recent pork revival in restaurants has only heightened America`s unyielding affinity for this smoky staple.

As a fan of Heather Lauer`s website www.BaconUnwrapped.com, and of course a true Bacon Freak myself and supporter those little strips of bacony goodness, I encourage you to pick up a copy of this book because Bacon is Meat Candy!
