It was only a matter of time. On June 16, Farmer John is presenting The Big Bite Bacon Fest at The San Diego County Fair in Del Mar. Organizers are now courting competitive home cooks and pro chefs to vie for the $5,000 pot. $55 also buys the general public access to one of two sessions, spread with crazy bacon dishes from local chefs and restaurants.
Additionally, there will be lots of San Diego craft beer on hand. Also, for zoophiles VIPs, something called the "Porklover Lounge."
And speaking of lovers, the production is looking for couples who want to marry amid "Bacon Bliss" before being escorted on their "Hog Honeymoon," which is really just a trip to Baltimore. Tickets available online.
