Mike Nelson (of Mystery Science Theater 3000 fame) is going to eat only bacon for a month:
Now for the fine print: “Bacon” shall hereafter refer to the cured and smoked fatty cuts of pork, either back, side or belly. In other words “American bacon”. No “Canadian bacon”, which is really just lunchmeat. No pork chops. No turkey bacon. No “tofacon” or any such horror. Just bacon.
No condiments allowed. No syrups, or hot sauces, or pureed vegetables in the form of ketchup. No sauces at all. Just nature’s finest bacon, all by its dignified self.
I am making allowances for the following beverages: beer, wine, martinis and water. No juices, no V8, nothing that could be construed as “healthy”. This is somewhat arbitrary, I grant you, but one bit of madness at a time, is my reasoning.
Anyone who’s been paying attention to our Recipe Box feature here at FineDiners.ca will know that we are nothing if not big fans of Bacon around here. But this guy is insane. Absolutely mad. But also awesome. A true Bacon hero.
