If you're enjoying bacon only as a partner for your breakfast eggs or to build a noontime BLT, take a look at I LOVE BACON. This yummily illustrated cookbook is not only a tribute to those delicious crispy strips but a chronicle of bacon's versatility with over 50 favorite recipes from acclaimed chefs. The variety is amazing and mouth-watering - everything from brunch dishes to entrees to soups to salads to cocktails to desserts, yes desserts!

For instance, Chef Bill McDaniel in New York City off

LOVE this book. The only problem is that I now want to make every single recipe in it - including the "make-your-own-bacon-from-scratch" recipes. I'm especially excited to make the bacon desserts.

I borrowed this book from the library; and this evening I made the 'Bluefish with corn, avocado and bacon salad' on page 69. I made a few alterations in the recipe for convenience sake (a different fish, canned corn, etc.)- nonetheless the dish was phenomenal. The juxtaposition of flavours is brilliant. I plan to purchase my own copy of the book asap, and I hope that Ms. Rockmill plans to write many more cookbooks, preferably in the immediate future.

I thought this would be a fanciful and silly book, but the recipes collected are very serious and some of them are quite difficult! Deep frying a poached egg that has been wrapped in a weave of bacon to serve atop red wine braised lentils, for example. Deep frying an egg (or anything that wet) has a high rate of failure in a professional kitchen! Plus, they have one of my favorite recipes from my old boss Bob Kinkead. But it for casual reading...make a lot of the recipes.

Because it's bacon! I was just going to look at it for a laugh and then put it in the shop, but some of the recipes actually look really good. They aren't all bacon heavy but use it as a good balance for the other ingredients. I'm looking forward to trying some of the recipes.

This is a book about bacon being awesome. So it's kind of obvious. I really like the conclusion where the author concedes that bacon is awesome, and so is bacon. BACON

I don't normally read cookbooks cover-to-cover, but this one kept me turning the pages. My sister brought it home from the library, and I think I hate her for it:)
