It's an indisputable fact that bacon is the world's greatest food. It goes with everything - from savoury to sweet - and it's just as comfortable being the star of the show as it is playing a supporting role. You can slather it in maple syrup; you can fry it till it's crisp; you can use it to wrap other meats; hell, you can even weave a delicious bacony sheet with it, and bacon confidently takes it all in its stride. All hail bacon.
The Scratch + Sniff Bacon Cookbook promises to sway even the most hardened vegetarians with its 40 bacon-centric recipes (not to mention its nifty scratch and sniff feature on the front cover) - from piggy snacks, including caramel bacon popcorn, candied bacon strips and bacon-wrapped sweet potato wedges, to heartier main dishes like bacon-laden mac and cheese and the ultimate pasta carbonara. Did we mention dessert too? You'll also find bacon and pecan ice-cream, choc-bacon cookies and everything bacon imaginable. It's time to pig out because everything is better with bacon!
