"[A] paean to pork."

--Boston Herald

A love letter to the "best meat ever," Bacon, by unabashed bacon enthusiast Heather Lauer, is a wondrous collection of bacon bits--filled with fun facts, recipes, history, and smoked porcine worship. The Memphis 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--Bacon is the next best thing to bacon wrapped in bacon.
