From May 12 until May 19, we will once again by celebrating Australian Bacon Week. We urge you to join us by organising a car rental in Sydney and indulging in some (or all) of these bacon-related activities.
Celebrity chef Colin Fassnidge will be serving "Australia’s most decadent bacon and egg roll" at his classy 4Fourteen restaurant, and its yours for the eating.
Besides bacon, this roll will include a duck egg cooked in truffle butter, roasted foie gras, 18-month cave-aged cheddar, shaved truffles, and semi-dried smoked gourmet truss tomatoes with a creme fraiche and caviar dressing.
The country's chefs have been challenged by Australian Pork Limited (APL) to match this with a stunning bacon-themed dish of their own. So keep an eye out for some more bacon-centric cuisine while you're out and about in your car hire in Sydney.
If you're staying in self-catering accommodation, you could try putting together your own bacon-inspired meal. Australian Bacon Week will see butchers and supermarkets around Sydney promoting the delicious crispy treat.
We like the sound of this bacon-wrapped asparagus recipe. It's super easy to prepare – all you need is asparagus, pepper and, of course, our good friend bacon.
If you want to show your respect for bacon by not eating it, why not check out the works of Francis Bacon at the Art Gallery of New South Wales in Sydney? Bacon was a figurative painter who was born in Ireland in 1909. He is best known for his "Three Studies for Figures at the Base of a Crucifixion" painting, which was completed in 1944.
Or, you can take a car trip to one of the nine public libraries dotted around Sydney and pick up a book by (a different) Francis Bacon. He was a sixteenth-century English philosopher, and is renowned for such treatises as Novum Organum and the History of Life and Death.
Whatever you do this week, make sure you do it with bacon.
