Who doesn’t love bacon? For several years I’ve seen lots of new recipes with bacon including bacon ice cream. I just learned that there is a National Bacon Day celebrated every Labor Day (okay, I’m a little behind on the news but blame that on spending so much time running the bed and breakfast I rarely get to watch TV or even read the paper). So now I’m on a quest to find new and exciting recipes to prepare at Hamanassett Bed & Breakfast this Labor Day weekend. And you can really get into the mood by celebrating this wonderful holiday in our area with a wine and bacon pairing. Penns Woods Winery, only 6 miles from Hamanassett Bed & Breakfast is offering a five course wine and bacon pairing on August 31, and September 1. Each dish will be prepared by a local chef or artisan and yes, one of the courses is bacon ice cream. Another course will be prepared by Chef Kaz Mitsui of Azie Restaurant . Azie is one of the top restaurants in our area and on our list of recommened restaurants when visiting Hamanassett.
