Bacon BashNot many people can say they’ve had bacon tacos, chocolate-covered bacon, bacon cocktails or even bacon Twinkies — especially not all in one day. But at’s second annual Bacon Bash, held at Bowlmor Times Square in New York City, you could find all those bacon goodies and more. If you thought bacon was just a breakfast side, Bacon Bash proved that it’s versatile enough to be made into main dishes and even dessert.

New York restaurants Guy’s American (Food Network’s own Guy Fieri‘s restaurant), House of ‘Que, Tres Carnes, Little Town and Bareburger, among others, were at the event offering unique takes on bacon recipes. And vendors such as Bacon Bites and Baconery had everything from chocolate-covered bacon to bacon soap, proving that bacon goes beyond edibles. FN Dish was on hand to taste all the porky goodness (except for the soap, of course).

    Can't seem to find anywhere on your website to send a letter or email so I will say it here. Shame on you for firing Paula Deen. I don't believe there is one person in your organization that has never made a derogatory comment or used a word that was inappropriate. Yours was my favorite network and I will miss watching but until you have apologized and bring Paula Deen back I will no longer watch. Shame on you.

    They say BACON comes from Nasty Pigs…well, FOOD NETWORK…You're the NASTY PIG. Paula Deen will survive and do even better and your show will surely flop now.
