Sky Full of Bacon


Welcome, Thanks, Gesundheit!

Well, it’s one of those nice days when a blogger gets the next best thing to a fat check— attention from the blogosphere. So if you’re new here, this will tell you about a few things.

First off, thanks to New City for naming me Best Local Food Blog:

Mike Gebert’s incisive critiques cut like a sizzling hot samurai-style Benihana-grill-chef’s knife through mystery-grade filet mignon. Including his well-produced video casts, the dude puts out more thoughtful, interesting food content than the folks at the big dailies who get paid to do so.

Be sure to check out audience fave Lottie+Doof, too, which is a really nice blog (I’ve recommended it before).

And thanks to the ever-lovely and witty Helen of Grub Street Chicago fame, whose Tweets constitute everything I know about modern fashion, and whose attention in turn led to New York Magazine featuring the Edzo’s Burger Shop short video today. Be sure to check out the blog post at the Chicago Reader where it originated.

So if you’re new here, the main purpose of Sky Full of Bacon is the videos, which can easily be found by clicking on Video Podcasts under Categories at right, or by going here. Otherwise, there’s quite an array of posts on everything from making charcuterie to discovering unknown ethnic restaurant areas to hopefully amusing commentary on the world of food media. Welcome and check it out!

    Congrats!
    I like Lottie+Doof a lot, but I think to win an award for a “Local Food Blog” there should be a “local” angle. Lottie+Doof is a general food blog that happens to exist locally.

    So, you win.

  2. Michael Gebert Says:

    I think it does mean just “Chicago-based,” not “locavore.” At least I can’t find any other category which would suggest that they sliced it finer than “best food blog from here.” And besides, as you know, I’m the inadvertent locavore, or whatever you called me…

    “…dude puts out…” Bad place for a line break.

    Yes, actually, I am 13.

    I didn’t mean “locavore”. I meant “some way connected to Chicago in it’s content”.
