Make no mistake, this is the 50 Shades of Grey for bacon enthusiasts. The book’s subheading leaves you with no doubt – Savory Flirtations, Dalliances, and Indulgences with the Underbelly of the Pig. Grease will go where you’ve never dared think of putting it before.
Author Jennifer Pearsall claims she can’t think of anything bacon doesn’t work with, whether it’s salty, sweet, sour, and bitter – bacon complements every other food it comes in contact with. In fact, Pearsall has declared that bacon qualifies as umami, that fifth taste sensation that, roughly translated, simply means “good flavor”.
Consequently, Pearsall has explored the depths of bacon’s complexities to bring us to new heights of pleasure, bringing the savory, smoky-sweet goodness that is bacon to breakfasts, lunches, appetizers, dinners, and even desserts. She will dice bacon fine and work it into a dessert crust, a bread dough, pulled pork, anything. If yours is a world where too much bacon is never enough, this is the book for you.
