Featuring Southern Foodways Alliance director John T. Edge
Nationally acclaimed author and contributor for the New York Times and director of the Southern Foodways Alliance, an organization dedicated to preserving and exploring the histories of the American South. His recent publication, The Potlikker Papers: A Food History of the Modern South, is a collection of Southern cultural culinary experiences. O, The Oprah Magazine said his writing is “a panoramic mural of the South’s culinary heritage, illuminating the region’s troubled place at the American table and the unsung role of cooks in the quest for social justice.”

Spend an evening with John T. Edge. Enjoy great food from Zingerman’s Greyline including a build-your-own BLT bar and caramel-enrobed bacon popcorn. Then, experience great conversations about food. John T. will discuss the power of narrative and its effects through the lens of culture and food.

We’re so excited to have him back at Camp Bacon for our 10 year anniversary! It’s going to be a great night—don’t miss out, tickets will go quick.

A whirlwind of fire and flavor takes the Roadhouse by storm!

Brace yourselves for what will be the boldest and tastiest Bacon Ball yet! The Roadhouse can’t wait to welcome Tony Fiasche, 'nduja artisan and co-owner of Tempesta Market in Chicago. Dubbed the “Sausage Kings of Chicago” by Foodable, Tony and his father Agostino continue a tradition of five generations of Calabrian salumi-making. It’s an art that requires as much balance as a proper tarantella.
