Iron Chef Cat Cora Knows Her Cocktails

Sunday, October 24, 2010 Review by judywrites

Iron Chef Cat Cora faced the challenge of bourbon as the secret ingredient tonight on Iron Chef America. So, bourbon and scotch are not the same, but can be interchangeable.

Chef Cora has some incredible dishes as only she can and tonight was no exception. Her starter was a cocktail with an appetizer dish. Not so sure about the appetizer itself because I was so intrigued by the drink she served with it.

So here it goes…

A healthy shot of bourbon (substitute your favorite scotch) in a glass coated with a vanilla salt (easy to do – dip the glass in vanilla and then into a salt, such as used for Margaritas). Instead of a stir stick, the drink included a rasher of brown sugar coated bacon skewered on a wooden kebak type stick.

That is quite an interesting and original use of both bacon and scotch…..

Try it. Let us know what you think. BTW, she won the challenge so Food Network might have more information on the drink and appetizer dish soon.

Cheers!

Kraft Deli Deluxe Bacon Cheddar

Saturday, October 23, 2010 Review by Andrew

Yes, that’s right, I did buy this product.  Yes, I do intend to eat the whole package (I paid for it!).  No, it is NOT good.

This product is the antithesis of the previously reviewed Redhead NY Bacon Peanut Brittle. If there is one thing that will turn people away from the bacon revolution, this product is it.

Taste: Kraft American Cheese (aka plastic) with stale baco’s embedded in it.

Consistency: It’s like eating Play Doh with bits of hardened “meat” sprinkled throughout. Also, although the packaging claims “8 Slices” it had reformed into one cube with no discernable individual slices, not a good sign.

Price: About $5 at Safeway.

Conclusions: This is an abomination. Kraft jumped the shark on this one as it contains neither bacon OR cheese. File this under “Do not buy” and just walk away. Trust me, it’s not worth it. My most hated house guests will be eating the remainder when they least expect it.

When You Just Gotta Have that Bacon Taste…..

Thursday, October 14, 2010 Review by judywrites

…you now have an option.

You can hear it sizzling in the pan, you can smell the aroma, and you can see it on your plate, but you are sitting at your desk, maybe driving your car and so that is not going to happen. BUT you want bacon….

Uncle Oinker's Bacon Min

Uncle Oinker's Bacon Mints

These mints have a definite bacon flavor, with a hint of refreshing mint. Not too pricey for a novelty treat – $2.49.

Might also be a great stocking stuffer for your bacon lover this holiday season.

Let us know if you try them.

Take care,
