Anyone who’s been following this blog for a while will know that I’m a big fan of Lost At E Minor. Ever since a friend introduced me to those wacky Aussies some time back I’ve been regularly checking in for my weekly dose of the weird and wonderful. They really do find the best stuff, from the bizarre to the down right amazing. I’m not sure which category I’d put this next find of their’s in, though. Candied bacon from The Sticky Pig. That’s right, bacon sweets.
I know it’s all the rage with some chefs to come up with the most unlikely foody combos, and that apparently they sometimes work. Anyone remember Heston Blumenthal’s bacon and egg ice-cream? That was supposedly lovely. Still, I don’t know. I love bacon. In fact it’s probably the only reason I’m not a veggie, which is weird because pigs are one of my favourite animals. Poor wee things, why do they have to taste so bloody good? I once went the best part of a year without eating meat but the smell of a rasher crisping under the grill lured me back to the dark side. But candied bacon? Who knows. I suppose bacon does taste good with maple syrup. And I did used to enjoy apple and salt sandwiches, which some people might think weirder than this “indulgent” delicacy.
