By Jim Boyce | Bacon has become ubiquitous over the past decade, to the point where you can find it in toothpaste, mints, ice cream and dental floss. (It’s only a matter of time before someone resurrects a dinosaur, stuffs it with pigs, puts it on a mammoth spit and serves it as Jurassic Pork. Drum roll.)
Given all this, Beijing seemed due for something like the Baconfest—or maybe Beiconfest?—that Mark Simon is organizing this month at Fella’s. Simon says eight chefs from around town will serve bacon dishes. He already has three or four signed up and will announce the full lineup soon.
The event is slated for May 28 at Fella’s with an entry fee of rmb100: that will get you two wines / beers plus side dishes. I’ll post more details as they become available. If you want to get in touch with Simon, check the email address on the poster below.
