In honor of the article published this weekend in the awesome Wall Street Journal, where I compare chefs abuse of bacon to showing off cleavage, I tap out this little excerpt from my first book, Urban Pantry from the "Stocking the Pantry" Section.
BACON. I keep a pound of slab bacon in my freezer and cut off little bits at a time for cooking. It's great in a pot of beans or lentils.
Bacon! An absolute must in the pantry!
