Guide to Better Bacon by Ari Weinzweig

Wait, the bacon trend isn't over yet? Some think it never will be. Others, like Ari Weinzweig, never called it a trend and never will. I've shared pork product with this man and I can tell you he's a true enthusiast and expert. The book is lovingly crafted in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where Ari's famous shops, Zingerman's Community of Businesses, are a local institution. The book is self published with old-school style foil stamping on the front, beautiful paper, all done locally. It's chock-full of history, guides to different bacons from Pancetta to Hungarian Double-Smoked, and recipes that demand good bacon like Bacon Fat Mayonnaise, Spaghetti alla Carbonara, and Hangtown Fry. Clearly, an essential guide-book for any bacon-enthusiast. • Buy the book: Zingerman's Guide to Better Bacon by Ari Weinzweig (Zingerman's Mail Order, $29.99) More 2009 Book ReviewsAsian Dumplings by Andrea Nguyen • Clean Food by Terry Walters • On Food & Cooking by Harold McGee • Secrets from My Tuscan Kitchen by Judy Witts Francini • The Perfect Fruit by Chip Brantley • Heard it Through the Grapevine by Matt Skinner • Big Food by Elissa Altman • Edible Schoolyard by Alice Waters • The River Cottage Meat Book by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall • Milk by Anne Mendelson • The New Steak by Cree LeFavour • A Homemade Life by Molly Wizenberg • Fresh Food From Small Places by R.
