British bacon made me like McDonalds. I was catching a flight in London Gatwick in the summer of 06 and when we neared, the airport was enshrouded in what I called "Jack the Ripper fog" so we circled until my flight was already gone, and I had almost a 2.5 hour layover scheduled. So I made due that day and evening (differnet post). But the next morning I rolled into the airport and checked my main bag and had time to kill, so I hit McD's there....Was pleased to see McMuffins didn't have that "Canadian bacon" travesty. Dug into their version and damn.... If I ever had a chance to eat something else more genuine that also involved said bacon, I can only imagine how much it would rock. :)

Grey Wolf,

    I don't know if MC D's use exclusively british bacon but I do know that most of the bacon in British shops is actually Danish but it is cut and cured the British way as opposed to the Danish way.

AD: the nice part is that having never had real bacon, I can't compare it to anything and therefore I can enjoy Morningstar farms breakfast strips for what they are - another flavor of soy protein.

That is cold comfort considering how hyperyummy real bacon is.

They call it "Canadian Bacon"...looks and tastes like a round piece of ham, to me.

From cholesterol poisoning?

He was in his 80's. If I can chow down on bacon from here on out, I'm good with that. ;)

Not nearly as knowledgeable about the stuff as I'd like to be, but yes, a fan.

My first cooking show hero is Justin Wilson -- by the time he was on, he was fairly old, overweight, wasn't shy about drinking, and still made a great meal. Definitely not fit for modern tv, but it worked for him for longer than probably most of today's plastic chefs will work. :)

Hmm... are there any recipes that call for cooking with Scotch?  Lots of recipes call for cognac, bourbon, or just good old wine, but I've never seen a recipe that had scotch in it.

IG: I'd think that you could substitute scotch into any recipe that calls for bourbon. If I remember correctly, they're both whiskeys at heart, but the differences are in the proportions and types of grains used and the aging times.

Of course if you really hate scotch, it wouldn't be a great recipe.  I've learned that scotch is one of those things you like or you don't.  People who love it, really love it, but then there are the people who just can't get into it no matter how many type you try.  I confess to being one of those types and I've tasted some pretty high-end scotches.

 Isn't there some kind of Scotch parfait that uses Scotch whiskey in it though?

I made my first matzah balls this week.  They came out kind of dense, but they tasted pretty good.

I served the soup with rolls.  Oops.
