Here in Sonoma County we have a great local radio station, KSRO-AM, where I have been co-hosting a Saturday morning show called “The Good Food Hour” for more than 26 years.
My co-host, Steve Garner and I, have hosted a cooking contest each year, and this year we’ve decided to feature an ingredient that’s near and dear to most people’s hearts: Bacon!
The minute you hear it sizzle in the hot pan, or take in its intoxicating smell while it’s cooking, bacon invokes passion in many of us. It may be nature’s most addictive food! The versatility of bacon is unmatched. From appetizers (remember rumaki?), soups, salads, breads and spreads, breakfast and main dishes, vegetables, even desserts and drinks, something with bacon always gets my attention.
Four finalists will assemble at G&G Supermarket in Santa Rosa on Saturday, Nov. 3, at 11 a.m. where their dishes will be tasted live during The Good Food Hour broadcast. The panel of judges will include myself, Steve Garner, and more celebrity judges. The overall winner will be selected during The Good Food Hour, from 11 a.m. to noon, from five finalists. Prizes for everyone including gift certificates, cookbooks, wine, cooking classes and, of course, bacon!
Your original and creative bacon recipe must be received by Wednesday Oct. 31, at 5 p.m. You may email, mail, or fax your recipe entries to:
