I like to share a good thing, whether it be good food or a person who knows good food and can share that knowledge with others. That's what the tastings at Jimmy's No. 43 are all about. One of my favorite tastings is the Bacon and Beer Tasting guided by Josh Ozersky, aka "Mr. Cutlets". Who can resist the succulent flavors of smoky, crisp bacon? Few can deny the allure of a fine bacon paired with a good beer.
Case in point, Mary Izett wrote in great detail about last year's bacon tasting. Bust Magazine has a blog that featured the Bacon and Beer Tasting that took place just last week.
In addition to several beer selections from Sixpoint Craft Ales, last week's tasting featured bacons from Oscar Mayer (USA), Flying Pig Farm (NY state), Violet Hill Farm (NY state), Nodine's (Connecticut) and Benton's (Tennessee).
Enjoy the bacon tasting reviews then go to the greenmarket, talk to the farmers, buy bacon!
