Front Cover Friday #23

I found this beautiful front cover in a book store in Manhattan, KS, over the weekend. It’s 224 pages of bacon – what could ever be better?! My mouth is watering just thinking about opening its pages. Check out the author’s blog too – ton’s of delicious bacon creations and recipes. I think I’ll go fry up some hog right now!

In this voluminous look at all things bacon, the creator of BaconUnwrapped.com takes her love of pig belly to print. Like its subject, this material is best consumed in small portions; along with anecdotes and opinions from hog farmers, chefs, food bloggers and average Joes, first-time author Lauer also covers topics like bacon production, non-pork variations, and songs devoted to the breakfast meat. Lauer does her best to keep things light, but her relentless cheerleading quickly becomes grating; her phrase “The Best Meat Ever” appears on almost every page. Still, bacon lovers will enjoy (and probably employ) the glut of trivia, including the restaurant chain that first put bacon on a cheeseburger (A&W), the number of states with a town named “Bacon” (six), and alternate uses such as “bacon plaster,” assembled with cheesecloth and affixed to one’s chest in order to ward off a cold. Even those well-acquainted with bacon will find new recipes like Black Pepper Bacon Chili, Bacon-Wrapped Tater Tots, Bacon Bloody Marys and Candied Bacon Ice Cream. Readers who, like Lauer, possess a borderline-obsessive love for bacon are likely to embrace this as their new Bible, but anyone else will quickly get their fill. [Publishers Weekly]
