  • Lentil and bacon soup

    • wester on October 11, 2017

      A good tasty lentil soup, made with ingredients I usually have on hand. Good for unexpected guests.

    • ChefGrumpy on February 04, 2023

      very good. different from other "lentil soups" - the black lentils (or french green called for in the recipe) make the difference and provide a very nice textured soup. bacon adds just the right smokiness. the "variations" are to switch sherry or port for the dry white wine. I used sherry and black lentils.

  • Bacon jam

    • PennyG on August 25, 2013

      Oh - this is yummy! I went to a cooking class Marie taught earlier this week featuring this book. She made this jam. I made it today to take to a tailgate party this evening - will be serving it with Brie cheese on crackers.

  • Bacon cheese straws

      What is not to like about this recipe? The family had eaten these Bacon Cheese Straws within the first 1/2 hour of cocktail time.

Is there any ingredient more beloved than bacon? The smell of bacon sizzling in the morning has got more people out of bed than the loudest alarm clock. It's a must-have in a BLT, turkey club, Cobb name it. But Kaminsky and Rama take it to new recipe heights, whether chopped and sauteed and used as a flavouring - much as you would garlic - or in chunks, strips, potted, baked, or flavourful crumbles as a finishing touch. Perfect in Crispy Polenta Bites with Sun-Dried Tomato Spread, Onion Soup with Bacon and Baguette Croutons, French Toast Bread Pudding with Bacon and Cinnamon, Pork Roast with Bacon, Fennel, and Black Mission Figs, and Crusted Salmon with Avocado and Red Onion Salad, Velvety Chicken Topped with Rosemary-Bacon Biscuits. And to finish off a meal, and Caramelized Pears with Candied Bacon Chips or Apple-Bacon Coffee Cake with Bourbon-Pecan Glaze.
