Note from Head Lab Tech Jenni S:
Since it's primo beach-reading weather, you need to pick up this book. Heather Lauer, of BaconUnwrapped fame, wrote this incredibly informative and insanely entertaining tome on bacon--sharing the history of the world's best meat product, profiles of bacon-headed chefs across the country, and wonderful recipes for all you bacon lovers to try at home (bacon-wrapped tater tots? Ooh, baby. I've already got my copy--I won it from her, and it just arrived last week, autographed and everything--and I'm gonna start reading this afternoon, curled up with a bowlful of bacon and possibly a Bacon Mary at my side.
