The Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival in Des Moines, Iowa has been going strong for two years and now we’re taking it on the road to several cities around the United States during the summer of 2009! The Bacon Tour will bring together bacon enthusiasts for a celebration of all things bacon. There are a limited number of tickets available for this event, so reserve your spot today.
Attendees will be treated to several bacon appetizers and small plates featuring Vande Rose Artisan Dry Cured bacon, rated #1 bacon by America’s Test Kitchen, featured in Cook’s Illustrated magazine and on the Today Show.
Pittsburgh’s own CoCo’s Cupcake Café will also be preparing bacon cupcakes to serve at the event.
Blue Ribbon Bacon Tour attendees will have the opportunity to purchase a signed copy of Bacon: A Love Story (HarperCollins, May 2009). The book was written by Heather Lauer, author of the blog, BaconUnwrapped.com. Lauer is co-hosting all Blue Ribbon Bacon Tour events being held around the country this summer. Local bacon blogger, Jason Mosley – aka “Mr. Baconpants” (www.mrbaconpants.com) – will also be co-hosting the event.
The event will be held at Harris Grill. Harris Grill is well known for its “Tuesday Bacon Night” at which happy hour patrons are treated to free bacon.
The Pittsburgh Bacon Tour event will also feature a bacon eating contest.
This half day festival dedicated to the Best Meat Ever will be held at Harris Grill in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
