Baconfest

IMG_7965

Wow. I don't have much time to expound on this right now, but Baconfest was awesome. I went to the first shift today, where 12 restaurants each presented a bacon-centric dish. There was a second shift later in the day, with 12 different restaurants. I don't think it would have been advisable to do both. It was almost too much, but still really worth the experience.

This was the people's choice winner from the first shift, a bacon waffle with brown sugar bacon ice cream and candied dehydrated bacon. And it was from the great new restaurant around the corner from me, Longman & Eagle. Wow. The candied bacon in particular was incredible. It was crunchy, sugary, BACON-Y. Awesome. And yes, that's a bloody mary in the background. Bacon-infused, of course.

Well, it certainly eliminated certain religious groups, didn't it? This sounds good, and good and bizarre. We're eating French-Vietnamese tonight.

Bacon ice cream? Heck, if the Gilroy Garlic Festival can have garlic ice cream, why not bacon? But think I'll pass, anyway.
