Clive Barker
“The paintings of Francis Bacon to my eye are very beautiful. The paintings of Bosch or Goya are to my eye very beautiful. I've also stood in front of those same paintings with people who've said, 'let's get on to the Botticellis as soon as possible.' I have lingered, of course.”
Clive Barker

Jasper Fforde
“Okay, this is the wisdom. First, time spent on reconnaissanse is never wasted. Second, almost anything can be improved with the addition of bacon. And finally, there is no problem on Earth that can't be ameliorated by a hot bath and a cup of tea.”
Jasper Fforde, Shades of Grey

Justin Halpern

“Danzhol. The one with the marriage proposal and the objections to the town charter in central Monsea. "Bacon," Bitterblue muttered. "Bacon!" she repeated, then carefully made her way up the spiral stairs.”
Kristin Cashore, Bitterblue

R.J. Scott
“You don't need meat at every meal," Riley offered, forking another bite of salad into his mouth and inwardly agreeing with Jack that it was certainly lacking something. Jack was quiet for all of ten seconds, and then he couldn't hold in his opinion one second more. "Are you really a Texan? I mean, really? Riley, if I have a headache, I'd put bacon around an aspirin before I take it.”
RJ Scott, The Heart of Texas

Gail Carriger
“As with most things in life, Lady Maccon preferred the civilized exterior to the dark underbelly (with the exception of pork products, of course.)”
Gail Carriger, Heartless

Jean-Jacques Rousseau
“Those whom nature destined to make her disciples have no need of teachers. Bacon, Descartes, Newton — these tutors of the human race had no need of tutors themselves, and what guides could have led them to those places where their vast genius carried them? Ordinary teachers could only have limited their understanding by confining it to their own narrow capabilities. With the first obstacles, they learned to exert themselves and made the effort to traverse the immense space they moved through. If it is necessary to permit some men to devote themselves to the study of the sciences and the arts, that should be only for those who feel in themselves the power to walk alone in those men's footsteps and to move beyond them. It is the task of this small number of people to raise monuments to the glory of the human mind.”
Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Discourse on the Sciences and Arts and Polemics

Stephanie Stamm
“Even apocalypse looks less dire when viewed over a plate of bacon.”
Stephanie Stamm, A Gift of Wings

Shannon Celebi
“Mrs. Porter was from Virginia and had a smooth-as-cat-fur way of speaking. She taught me how to say, “Fiddle-Dee-Dee,” just like Scarlett O’Hara and she made her split-pea soup with bacon and even let me try on her lipstick sometimes as she teased up my hair in the same sixties style she wore, “Ala Pricilla Presley,” whoever that was.”
Shannon Celebi, 1:32 P.M.

Thomm Quackenbush

Thomm Quackenbush, Danse Macabre (Night's Dream, #2)

Eugen Bacon
“If I were a fictional character, I'd be... Professor Moriarty. A tantalising mastermind. S/he’d be a person of colour.”
Eugen Bacon

There's the apple's crisp texture and mildly sweet flavor. The onions, which have been simmered to a smooth softness...
... and the crunchy, salty bacon on top, cooked to crispy perfection. But the apples really holds the spotlight. Its mild sweetness spreading throughout the risotto.
It's gentle caress...
... gradually wakes you from your slumber.
Like the soft kiss...
... of a prince!

Yuto Tsukuda, 食戟のソーマ 6 [Shokugeki no Souma 6]

“The first sentence of Ralph Waldo Emerson’s that reached me still jolts me every time I run into it. “Meek young men,” he wrote in “The American Scholar,” “grow up in libraries believing it their duty to accept the views which Cicero, which Locke, which Bacon have given, forgetful that Cicero, Locke, and Bacon were only young men in libraries when they wrote those books…”
Robert D. Richardson Jr., First We Read, Then We Write: Emerson on the Creative Process

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“Do you belive in me now?'' he asked, reaching for the plate my bacon was on.
Snapping forward, I caught his hand around the wrist before he got a hold of my bacon. ''I might believe you, but that doesn't mean you can steal my bacon.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Wicked

Kimberly Stuart
“Kai had won his argument with the bacon, but I conceded only to a monastic crumble of extracrispy bits, as underdone bacon would have violated every personal code I maintained. I forced him to make his own frosting and to include a maple accent, and the bacon/maple combo could only be used on half of the batch. The others, all mine, turned out beautifully and as previously discussed with Manda: strawberry-raspberry cakes with a light and airy lime frosting. I would garnish with a single perfect raspberry right before the party.”
Kimberly Stuart, Sugar

Just a little bit of bitter spinach...
... isn't nearly enough to explain that gushing riptide of savory salmon flavor!

"You're right. There is another trick to it. When I made the crepe, I added both spinach...
... and this spice mix to it."
"A SPICE MIX?!"
Spice mixes, also called seasoning mixes or spice blends, are original mixes of herbs, seasonings, salt and pepper. Infinitely adjustable, spice mixes are the ultimate in seasoning, usable in just about every situation.
"Spices!"
"My mix uses salt, pepper, thyme, oregano, garlic...
... and dried bacon powder.”
Yuto Tsukuda, 食戟のソーマ 19 [Shokugeki no Souma 19]

Oooh! Bacon and onion miso soup!
Aaah! This too!"
Unexpectedly, the bacon matches ridiculously well with the miso!
The unique aroma of dried tuna stock tickles the nose.
That coupled with the thick sweetness of the onions...
... wraps the whole body in fresh spring bliss!

WHOA! Now that's some thick-cut bacon!"
"Oh my gosh! Look! The top of it is gleaming!
Just looking at it is making me hungry..."
"Wait a minute. If he's copying the transfer student, then the meat he's using should be oxtail, right? So why is he bringing out bacon?"
If he's adding bacon to beef stew, there's only one thing it could be.
A GARNISH!
THE BACON IS MEANT TO BE A SIDE DISH TO THE STEW.
Yukihira's recipe is the type that calls for straining the demi-glace sauce at the end to give it a smooth texture. That means its only official ingredients are the meat and the sauce, making for a very plain dish. Garnishes of some sort are a necessity!
Beef simmered in red wine- the French dish thought to be the predecessor to beef stew- always comes with at least a handful of garnishes.
The traditional garnishes are croutons, glazed pearl onions, sautéed mushrooms...
... and bacon!

Then that means...
he's going to take that thick, juicy bacon and add it to the stew?!"
"Now he's sautéing those extra-thick slices of bacon in butter!
He's being just as efficient and delicate as always."
"Man, the smell of that bacon is so good! It's smoky, yet still somehow mellow..."
"What kind of wood chips did he use to give it that kind of scent?"
"You wanna know what I used? Easy. It's mesquite."
"Mess-keet?"
"Have you heard of it?"
"It's a small tree used for smoking that's native to Mexico and the Southern U.S. You'll hardly find it used anywhere in Japan though."
"Ibusaki!"
Mesquite is one of the most popular kinds of wood chips in Texas, the heartland of barbecues and grilling. Because of its sharp scent, it's mostly used in small quantities for smoking particularly rough cuts of meat, giving them a golden sheen.
"But I didn't stop there! I added a secret weapon to my curing compound- Muscovado sugar!
I sweetened my curing compound with Muscovado, sage, nutmeg, basil and other spices, letting the bacon marinate for a week!
It will have boosted the umami of the bacon ten times over!

Amy E. Reichert
“Bacon, chocolate, and caramel- those were all things May liked. Maybe after she fried the bacon, she could crumble it into caramel and drizzle that on top of her favorite brownie recipe. She set to baking.
Once the brownies were done and glazed with the bacon caramel, she cut a huge slab out of the corner and slid it onto a plate, burning herself on the gooey, piping-hot concoction.”
Amy E. Reichert, The Optimist's Guide to Letting Go

Amy E. Reichert
“The salty bacon and sweet caramel gave her gooey brownie a nice salty/sweet kick, and she wished she could bake them for her dad. He would have loved how she'd improved on her brownie recipe.”
Amy E. Reichert, The Optimist's Guide to Letting Go

I boiled potatoes until they were hot and fluffy...
... and then kneaded in diced mushrooms, which are fibrous and soak up fat easily.
Then I wrapped the whole mixture up in thick-cut bacon and set it to roast!
The heat caused the fat to render out of the bacon, leaving its crispy and crunchy...
... while the potatoes soaked up every last drop of the savory pork fat!
Crispy on the outside...
... juicy on the inside.
Together they create a savory and sensual taste experience!

Yuto Tsukuda, Food Wars!: Shokugeki no Soma, Vol. 1

Kusunoki left both ingredients as is, wrapping the salmon in the bacon and delicately heating both to elegant perfection.
Using the same concept behind the ramen staple seafood-pork broth, melding the umami of both fish and meat together created a powerfully savory flavor.
The olive oil bath he used to prevent even a drop of the fish's juices from escaping was also an excellent touch.
In the end, his dish was the picture of a salmon's savory deliciousness, perfectly recreated on the plate.
