About this item

“[A] paean to pork.”

Boston Herald


A love letter to the “best meatever,” Bacon, by unabashed bacon enthusiast Heather Lauer, is a wondrous collection of bacon bits—filled with fun facts, recipes, history, and smoked porcine worship. TheMemphis Commercial Appeal says, “If you can make it to the end of this book without craving just a taste of the savory stuff, then you’re probably the world’s strongest vegetarian.” Adoring, entertaining, and informative—sizzling with Lauer’s infectious passion for her mouthwatering subject—Baconis the next best thing to bacon wrapped in bacon.
