Sky Full of Bacon


More random stuff

A layer of fat in a Kobe beef brisket.

1. Please remove your “1.20.09” bumpersticker now. You don’t want to be as bad as the car I saw on election day 2008 bearing a (weirdly pristine) Kerry/Edwards bumpersticker.

2. Just saw that Michael Nagrant kindly posted this in a year-end roundup type thing at New City:

Top 5 Culinary Things to be Thankful For
Any dessert Elizabeth Dahl makes at Boka
Green City Market and the late Abby Mandel
Mike Gebert’s culinary videos at Sky Full of Bacon
Mike Sula’s thoughtful food writing—especially the Mulefoot project at the Chicago Reader
Ryan Poli is back in town at Perennial

3. The ChiTrib has a great story on Jennifer McLagan (of Fat fame, no not her personally, her book of that title which I talked about here.) A sample quote:

Take that, prosciutto-avoiders.

4. Kinda random masthead tagline at LTHForum right now:

5. My friend Wyatt Mitchell (thanked at the end of several podcasts for various technical reasons) passed along this fun story under the heading “Sky Full of Bacon Goes To Tokyo.” I wish…

    I was quoted on the previous tagline, which I didn’t realize was quote-worthy until after it had been chosen:

    “Never order an Italian Beef that has to be brought to you by a waiter.”

    Hello Mike,

    Better late than never, I want to thank-you for mentioning me and my book so often on your blog and for spreading the word about the joys fat. I hope to get to Chicago this year it seems like a town full of fat lovers.
