Is Bacon Too Sensationalized?
Ah, bacon. As a culinary professional, I hear about and see bacon absolutely everywhere. It’s in our cupcakes, our sandwiches, even our beers! So, what’s my opinion? Bacon is just another passing fad.
In terms of a culinary perspective, bacon is extremely important. The combination of salty and smoky flavors is a great accent to most sandwiches or salads. I love a nice, crisp piece of bacon in the morning However, I’ve just about had enough of the bacon gimmicks. When paired with sweet items, bacon is definitely a novelty as opposed to an important piece in the culinary equation.
In conclusion, give me bacon. Give me bacon on my BLT and in my mac & cheese, but leave it out of my milkshake, please!
