Baconfest 2012

BaconFest-Chicago-150.jpgBaconfest is this Saturday. If you're as into bacon as the people who snatched up all the tickets, you'll want to check out this list: all the dishes chefs are making between the two sessions at UIC Forum. What's on deck? Barn & Co has a smoked brisket slider with bacon jam and bacon BBQ sauce. Chizakaya will serve its baconomiyaki, a Japanese-style stuffed “pizza” with Nueske’s bacon. Hearty will have bacon rice crispies. And there's so much more; about 100 restaurants are participating. Didn't get tickets? Plenty of restaurants will serve their dish on their regular menus so get this PDF to see where you can have your own Baconfest. Either way, stock up on Lipitor now. [EaterWire]
