It is International Bacon Day tomorrow! On International Bacon Day last year, I was on the Theatre of Food stage at Electric Picnic teaching a Bacon Masterclass. Wot larks. This year I am back there again, and will be celebrating in the most bacontastic way possible, which I have yet to discover. There is always great food there, so I am sure I will be fine.
What can you do? Any one of these :)
Make one my my bacon jam recipes (the rest are saved for Project: BACON next February), and have it with your eggs on the morning. Blitz it fine and spread it thickly on your toast soldiers to dip into a quivering egg.
Make my Bourbon Bacon Chocolate Truffles for afters. You really should. I don’t even need to explain why.
Book a bacon masterclass in London! I have not had much time to promote them and have yet to set up the ticket system so, the deal is, in my new super swish school the classes are longer and include bacon brunch, so the prices have had to go up to a still-very-competitive £95 for 4 hours (as opposed to £75 for 3).
However, the first 6 places are early bird and at the original £75, and in the interest of celebrating International Bacon Day AND filling the class as quickly as I can, I will offer the places at the £75 early bird price to any of the classes to anyone who books them between now and Tuesday 3rd September.
Email me and don’t panic if I don’t get back immediately as I shall be mooching around a very large field seeking bacon, wine and great music. Dates and details here (in summary: Sat 21st Sept, Sat 26th Oct, Sat 16th Nov, Sat 14th Dec 10am – 2pm). First come first serve – email niamh at eatlikeagirl dot com.
Book a bacon masterclass in DUBLIN! A rare opportunity to attend a class in Dublin and at a bargainous €60, this 2 and a half hour class will reveal plenty of my bacon secrets with tastings and wine. It will be fun, you will take all the recipes and bacon secrets home with you, and I will also be selling signed copies of Comfort & Spice and taking pre orders for Project: BACON. Book here.
The class will be taught by me and hosted by Robert Jacob at The Cookery School @ Donnybrook Fair in Donnybrook, Dublin 4 on 18th September 2013 from 7.00 pm – 930 pm. Limited spaces.
HAPPY INTERNATIONAL BACON DAY! (and don’t forget the maple syrup :)
