Makin' Bacon


Along with donuts, cannoli and foie gras, it's on our top 10 list of things to make this fall-winter.

Last week, I bought Michael Ruhlman's Twenty and lo and behold! A step by step recipe for homemade bacon with photos.

A quick tweet to Getaway (our fab Meat Mongers at the Seaport Market) and BAM - a 5lb pork belly wrapped and waiting for me.

We have to wait 7 days. 7 excruciatingly long (yet exciting) days for the bacon to cure.

Next Sunday's breakfast is going to be OFF THE CHARTS.
