We'll be using the power of bacon to flavor three amazing baked goods, all in honor of Zingerman's Guide to Better Bacon book (available at all Zingerman's locations). You'll make a similar version of our wildly popular peppered bacon farm bread, bacon cheddar scones found in the book, and sweet and salty bacon pecan sandy cookies. We'll take you to hog heaven with a demonstration of our maple glazed bacon apple doughnuts. Try and contain yourself.

Miss Kim is enthusiastically jumping on the Camp Bacon bandwagon by designing a dinner menu with deliciously porcine predilections.

At $75, per person, the menu will feature :

  • Pork Belly Bossam
  • Pork Skin Tteokbokki
  • Koryo Carrot Salad
  • Kimchi braised pork shoulder with Benton's bacon braised collards
  • Fried Apple dumpling with candied Nueske's bacon bits
  • A bottle of soju or a flight of 5 house infused soju shots.

Since this is a special menu, rather than a ticketed event, all you have to do is make yourself a reservation to Miss Kim for the evening of May 31.

If you have porcine predilections yourself, we do suggest that you make that reservation quick as you can. Spots are going to go as fast as a plate of crispy fried bacon!
