I am totally obsessed with bacon right now. Black Forest bacon, Applewood smoked bacon, you name it, I love it. Apparently, I’m not the only one. Bacon is the culinary world’s current obsession, which Corkbar in Los Angeles is celebrating with its Swine & Wine event February 2nd. The menu, designed especially for pork lovers and wine enthusiasts, pairs bacon-centric dishes with hand selected wines. And, amazingly, it’s only $25 plus an additional $13 for the wine pairing. That is my kind of good deal right there.
The menu includes a host of amazing dishes, including a frisÃƒÂ©e and bacon salad with roasted tomato, shallot, bacon lardons, and grain mustard vinaigrette; BÃƒÂ¡hn Mi sliders, made with cured pork belly, Hoisin glaze, Sambal aÃƒÂ¯oli, micro cilantro, and pickled daikon and carrot, served on a brioche bun with a side of Sriracha sauce; and a bacon chocolate cupcake with caramel whipped cream and bacon lardons. Holy cow, er, pig!
