It’s Back – Zingerman’s Camp Bacon!!
It’s not like Zingerman’s needs any of my help in the publicity department, heck they’re even in the latest Jason Segel movie, but when it comes to this event how could I not recommend it…
Bacon Camp 2012!
(pulled straight from their site)
Saturday, June 2nd
8:00am to 4:00pm
An all day event at Zingerman’s Roadhouse.
This year’s guest presenters (tentative lineup) include:
Emile de Felice – owner of Caw Caw Creek Farms, South Carolina – the ins and outs of sustainable hog farming
Allan Benton – founder and owner, Benton’s Country Hams – the tradition of pork curing in the Appalachians
Audrey Petty – author and poet – bacon and African American foodways
Geoff Emberling – PhD archeologist and museum curator – hog raising in the Middle East before Mohammed
Ji Hye Kim – founder of San Street – a brief survey of bacon cooking and eating in Asia
Ari Weinzweig – co-founding partner of Zingerman’s and author of Zingerman’s Guide to Better Bacon – a look at bacon history in Hungary
Proceeds from this event benefit Southern Foodways Alliance, which Corby Kummer called “this country’s most intellectually engaged (and probably most engaging) food society” in the Atlantic Monthly.
Spaces are limited. Tickets are $195/person and include breakfast, lunch and more bacon than you knew you could eat.
Unfortunately, my calendar will not allow me to attend (yet again!), but if any of you adventurous souls make the trip please let me know. I’d love to deputize a corespondent
