“Bacon lovers everywhere can unite with this sweet, salty and entirely epic – The Bacon Cookbook, by James Villas.
"Mmm… bacon—that crispy, crunchy, salty, greasy god of the breakfast table. But why should bacon fans be limited in their indulgence by the time of day? Thanks to The Bacon Cookbook by James Villas, I can now enjoy bacon for every meal. Simply looking at the full-color glossy photographs makes my stomach groan in anticipation of Guacamole and Bacon Canapés; Jamaican Smoked Fish, Cheese, and Bacon Salad; and English Roast Guinea Hens with Bacon and Mushrooms. Of course, the book doesn’t skimp on the classics.
New England Apple and Bacon Griddlecakes and California Hangtown Fry both put a new spin on your morning regime, while the entire first chapter is dedicated to types of bacon, uses for bacon fat, and methods of preparing and storing bacon.
The first sentence of this glorious bacon bible reads, “I don’t hesitate a moment to proclaim bacon to be the most beloved food on earth.” Cheers to that, James Villas; I raise my frying pan to your health."
"The Bacon Cookbook by James Villas is a wondrous celebration of one of the greatest food items ever to grace this planet - bacon! For me, the best part about this cookbook was how may recipes elevate this humble ingredient. When I think of bacon, I typically of simple fare like breakfast eggs or a BLT sandwich.
The recipes in this cookbook go far beyond that fare, showing you how to incorporate bacon into gourmet fare. As a bonus, each recipe includes a detailed explanation that delves into the history and background of each and every dish. Not every recipe has a picture, but for the ones that do just try to not drool all over the page. I can guarantee that the recipes in this cookbook will forever change the way you think about bacon."
