A Girl and Her Pig: Recipes and Stories

A Girl and her Pig - a book including recipes and stories.
The review from Amazon:
In A Girl and Her Pig, April Bloomfield takes home cooks on an intimate tour of the food that has made her a star. Thoughtful, voice-driven recipes go behind the scenes of Bloomfield's lauded restaurants—The Spotted Pig, The Breslin, and The John Dory—and into her own home kitchen, where her attention to detail and reverence for honest ingredients result in unforgettable dishes that reflect her love for the tactile pleasures of cooking and eating. Bloomfield's innovative yet refreshingly straightforward recipes, which pair her English roots with a deeply Italian influence, offer an unfailingly modern and fresh sensibility and showcase her bold flavors, sensitive handling of seasonal produce, and nose-to-tail ethos. A cookbook as delightful and lacking in pretention as Bloomfield herself, A Girl and Her Pig combines exquisite food with charming narratives on Bloomfield's journey from working-class England to the apex of the culinary world, along with loving portraits of the people who have guided her along the way.

Pig snout Coffee Cup

The perfect present for Xmas. A Pig snout on the bottom of the coffee cup - looks great!

Pig Merry go Round

Ever seen a child riding a Pig? On a Merry go Round?
Apparently this was before they made horses do this stuff!

American Footballs and Jews

Apparently more Jews would play American Football if they weren't throwing around a Pig skin.

Thanks Phil!

Dallas Cowboys Official Bacon

The Dallas Cowboys Football team has their own Bacon - that is pretty cool. If I didn't think American Football was for poofs I might even be interested in it!

Check it out!

Bacon Shaving Cream

Ok so I know I'm late on the draw with this one, but I've been away and couldn't post anything except photos of Pigs in Vietnam - more than you'd think!

So JD's have released yet another great product, and just in time for the end of Movember!

Check it out - Bacon Shaving Cream!

Peter Siddle regrets

After the second cricket test between Australia and South Africa Peter Siddle was all bowled out. He needed to take a rest and was not played in the third and final test where the South Africans gave the Australians a true hiding!
But if he seen this sign, perhaps things would have been a little different. Little Pigs, Bar-B-Q sandwiches looked to offer Peter Siddle the perfect solution - thank goodness he didn't take it!

No updates but Bacon can be salad

I'm away in Vietnam at the moment so there have been no regular updates. And won't be till December.
But I did spot this on the menu somewhere - I forget where. But it was here in Vietnam.
Just shows that Bacon can be a salad!

Vietnamese Swine transportation

Spotted this while we were out walking in the hills around Sapa today. Trussed, caged and ready to go on the back of a bike to market!

Vietnamese Post cards

Got these at a tourist stop disguised as a toilet break on the way from Ha Long Bay to Hanoi. These are some of what was on offer. But we have seen many things made into Pigs!

Vark Club - Smoked Pulled Pork

Another edition of Vark Club - this time it was my turn to host. The plan - Smoked Pulled Pork Shoulder.
I started the fire in the Weber around 9:30am. Meat went in (after having been prepped and rubbed the night before) at around 10am.
Checking throughout the day, adding more coals, adding more hickory wood chips, and just watching. Luckily I work from home so have the time to do this!
Around 4ish I started getting nervous the skin wasn't crisping up properly so cranked up the heat by adding quite a few more coals.
Well I have to say it turned out fantastically! The smoke ring was clear to see! Trying to get it off the grid you could see it start falling apart - the dudes were most impressed! And so much flavour yet again!
Winner winner Porky dinner!

Thanks to Spoem for the photos.

Pigs generate electricity with ice cream

I found a story on TimesLive from a few weeks ago that mentions how a farm in Australia is feeding their Pigs ice cream, as a treat. Ok yes, there is a lot more to the story than just that.
Basically they're farming methane produced by the Pigs!
The manure from the 22,000 Pigs used to go to a land fill now goes into a huge pond. They then capture the methane gas and harness this gas to make electricity. They are managing to operate the entire farm on this electricity as well as selling some back to the grid!
So Pigs not only taste great and make all sorts of meaty treats, they can also generate electricity!
They truly are amazing creatures!

Bacon Chocolate Cupcake

I don't know where this came from. Johannesburg is where the wife had come from. This cupcake arrived in my fridge. I ate it.
It was top to the power of Epic! Nice flavours. Very soft cake. Lovely mix of savory Bacon with sweet chocolate.
A winner by all measures.

Bacon your Pardon

Bacon your pardon, I mustache you a question. This t-shirt is now available at Zazzle 

The first Bacon Costume

What might just be the very first costume of Bacon has been found. It was created by George J. Nicholls in April 1894 for the Covent Garden Fancy Dress Ball. He earned himself a tidy sum of forty Guineas for his efforts!
George Nicholls was a huge lover of Bacon, even penning a book title "Bacon and Hams" in 1917.

Stucky's in Volksrust

Thanks Banch for sending in this photo from a place he stayed at in Volksrust - yes it is far away from anything. And why he was staying there is a mystery. But either way - we got the photo that looks like they are A OK. The like swine!
It's a place called Stucky's Guesthouse and it looks like they support the German theme of things. So Eisbein and lots of swine! Love it!

Bacon for President

With the elections in the USA coming up soon, yet another Bacon for President campaign poster!

Bacon Pecan Brittle

How good does this stuff look! Apart from it either being so hard it cracks your teeth, or so sticky it pulls them out when you chew...apart from that it looks fantastic! And I'd take the risk!

So where can I get some of this stuff?

Great moments in history

A truly great moment when eggs first met Bacon. Everything just clicked!

Follow The Bounce likes Bacon

So on Twitter I follow a dude who calls his website and twitter - Follow The Bounce,  who is pretty clued up on his sport. Fun comments and likes a bit of beer.
And it turns out he likes Bacon too - check him out at this site, and on Twitter. I think he was at some beer festival up in Joburg when this was taken. Love it!

Halloween Bacon Costumes

Scientists grow bacon from stem cells

From an article on Mother Nature Network they say "A new technique that turns pig stem cells into strips of meat could offer a green alternative to the slaughterhouse and help end hunger."

Now this kind of scares me a little, but does make sense considering all the doom people are talking about with regards to the end of the Bacon world as we know it. I apologize for contributing to this doom talk, but it has to be said....this is pretty sick.

Even the scientists haven't attempted to taste it yet.

If only the Bacon they're making came out looking like this...

Make Crispy Bacon Tubes

Over at The Wicked Noodle they have an article about Bacon and what you can do with it. One of the items is to twist your Bacon into a tight twist. Place in a pan and cook until crispy in the oven. You'll get some nice twisted Bacon!

Do it!

The Muppets and the Bacon shortage

So there has been a lot in the news recently about a world wide Bacon shortage. I've heard all this before.
Sure the prices will go up, but that's what happens leading up towards Christmas when Pork consumption goes up. There are still plenty of Pigs available for the big festive meals.

But either is a great cartoon of the Muppets about the Bacon shortage.

More Election Bacon

Yet another presidential campaign for Bacon poster.

Check out the other one here. And this one here.
