The end of the year means something special among my circle of friends. Instead of going through the clichéd traditions of wringing out the old and bringing in the new, we pay tribute to the modern marvel of this day and age: bacon.
Chef Cynthia outdid herself (as she does with all of her hosted events) by creating the most extravagant assortment of bacon themed dishes. The theme for the 2013 Bacon Fest was appetizers. Collected here are the pictures and descriptions for no other reason than to make you jealous that we feasted on this spread and you didn’t.
