The back bacon (or peameal as everyone around here calls it, since its rolled in peameal) is so easy to come by around here. i'm really surprised it would be that hard to find.
We try to keep things interesting... last month was exceptional!
The theme was "Whiskies from outside of the UK"
We tried two japanese, Yoichi 12yo and Suntory Hakushu 12yo, as well as a Canadian Single Malt that is available called Glen Breton.
Our food pairings were Sushi rolls, with assorted filling, as well as some Japanese sweet rice crackers, Wasabi covered peas, and some really great chocolate covered almonds.
Its interesting how the food brings out a completely different set of flavours!
By the way... i don't think there are very many things I wouldn't eat, if friend up in lots of butter with bacon and garlic
