A look back at Baconfest Chicago

This event is one that I really look forward to each year - Baconfest Chicago. It's a weekend of meaty paradise with three sessions - over 50 participants at each - serving up anything and everything containing bacon. 

There's appetizers. There's side dishes. There's soups. There's pizza. There's entrees. There's desserts. There's bacon everywhere...much to the delight of bacon aficionados like myself. It's just like they say....EVERYTHING IS BETTER WITH BACON. And it couldn't be more true than at this fest dedicated to the salty, smoky pork treat that raises thousands for the Greater Chicago Food Depository. Here's a look at what went down this year.
