Join us at (revolver) in Hamtramck for our bacon centric community table dinner on Friday, June 2, 2017. This dinner has been specially constructed for our Zingerman’s Food Tour in conjunction with our 5 day Camp Bacon Celebration. Our Fresh Taste of Detroit Food Tour is filled, but luckily, we have 14 additional seats we can open for the dinner portion only.

When you register for this dinner, you’ll be meeting us at (revolver) in Hamtramck. Our bus will be pulling in at 6:00, and with you joining us at the table, we’ll get right to the bacon!

Chef Sarah has constructed the most amazing “ode to all things bacon” for our dinner. She’ll be bringing us "5 different kinds of bacon (lamb, pork, goat, rabbit, salmon) and a bunch of pork fat. Each course has a different kind of bacon in it. The meal progresses through the various meals of the day - breakfast, snack, lunch, dinner, dessert so that people can see bacon in all its glorious forms both by meal type and bacon manipulation." Here’s a “taste” of what’s in store:

Breakfast - Bacon & Eggs
Savory maple egg curd, lamb bacon jam, candied orange, hot sauce, bacon fat biscuit

Mid-Day Snack - BLT Salad
Bacon vinaigrette, tomato jam, chevre, cruton, Stonecoop Greens, bacon cured salmon

Lunch - Bacon Ramen
Bacon dashi, pickled summer vegetables, poached quail egg, crispy goat bacon

Dinner - Pork Steak & Potatoes
Grilled pork belly, potato salad, miso apple butter, apple slaw

Dessert - Bacon Doughnut
curing spices, ice cream, rabbit bacon crumble

Chef Sarah Welch is a graduate of the French Culinary Institute in New York City's Hyde Park. While in school, she interned for Michelin-Star-rated, and James-Beard-winning, April Bloomfield, at The Spotted Pig. After graduating, she moved back home to Michigan, where she absorbed experience and technique during a two-year stint at Birmingham's heralded Forest Grill. Next, she moved on to a Sous Chef position at Ann Arbor's long-standing favorite, Mani Osteria. Then, in late 2014, she was offered an opening Sous Chef post at the highly anticipated Republic Tavern, in Downtown's historic Grand Army of the Republic building, under Executive Chef Kate Williams. Upon Kate's departure in Spring of 2015, Sarah was promoted to Executive Chef of both Republic, and new sister restaurant, the brunch hot spot Parks & Rec. Now, she's ready to get back to basics. In true (revolver) fashion, Sarah has committed to 6 months in Hamtramck, while contemplating her next big move.  

(revolver) is located at 9737 Joseph Campau, Hamtramck Michigan. Parking is on the street.
