Well that is a lot in one title, isn’t it? I have a lot to share, and it is all about BACON. Because bacon makes my world go round.
When I started teaching my bacon masterclass (bacon jam, bacon jam fudge, maple & tamarind candied bacon and bacon vodka), I had a lot of emails from international readers and those outside London asking if I would be teaching them elsewhere and if I would be sharing the recipes.
I can answer that now :)
BACON MANIA ON THE JOHN MURRAY SHOW ON RTE RADIO 1
A face for radio? I was interviewed on the John Murray Show on RTE Radio 1 yesterday morning about my bacon fascination. Bacon the world a better place, as he said himself. (And I am so stealing that). I must say I did love being in a little radio studio in London. I have a taste for it now! I also revealed my plans for an app. More on that later.
ALL THINGS BACON DEMO AT THE THEATRE OF FOOD, ELECTRIC PICNIC
No pop up this year, but I will be cooking some of my bacon recipes for the good folks at Electric Picnic in the Theatre of Food at 7pm on Friday 31st August. There will be lots of tasters. To get your mucky paws on my bacon jam, bacon jam fudge and bacon & maple marshmallow, make sure you are there.
I started thinking about how I could run the classes elsewhere and my thoughts came racing back to the internet. It made perfect sense to build the recipes from the class (and lots of new ones) into an app for the iPhone / iPad (to begin with). That way I can incorporate video and ease you through the bacon jam fudge and marshmallow. I have spent the summer developing recipes and we are building the app now. I will let you know when it will be ready. We want to do it properly so it will take a little time. I would love to hear from you about what you would expect / like from a food app from me. If you have time, please leave a comment below.
DUBLIN COOKING CLASS
On Tuesday 4th September I had planeed to teach a bacon masterclass in Dublin, but unfortunately the school is only set up for demo classes, and I need a hands on space. If anyone knows of any, I would love to hear from you. There has been a lot of interest. Please email me on niamh at eatlikeagirl dot com to let me know about a space or to register your interest in attending. Hopefully, we can do it!
That is all for now folks! I am in Copenhagen for Copenhagen Cooking, so next time I come back, expect to hear a little about that :)
