Okay, now this is definitely different. I know that a lot of us here, especially the kids, would have nothing to do with the boring color of bacon. I’m sure some of us would like something different. Well, guess what there’s something different now.
Thanks to Neil Caldwell, we’re about to witness a new chapter in bacon history: the introduction of the rainbow bacon. That’s right, rainbow bacon. Pieces of crunchy, tasty bacon cooked to perfection, and in all colors of the rainbow.
“Wait!” you might ask, “In all colors of the rainbow? You mean red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet?” Uh, the indigo part could be left out, but as for the other colors, it’s an affirmative. It may sound, and look, revolting for some, but there’s nothing wrong with it. Actually, it looks fun to eat.
And I assure you, it’s not a fake, or a Photoshopped image (although our good friend Caldwell here is a graphic artist by profession). It really is bacon dyed in rainbow colors. It still retains the taste, texture, and aroma of original bacon, but it now comes in different colors. And it’s a good thing.
Bacon is an excellent flavouring for dishes. The only reason chefs around the world are hesitant to use it is because of the color. Bacon has this drab pinkish-brown patina that makes it the poor choice as flavouring for some dishes. I guess problem is solved now, thanks to the colored bacon.
Now what is the recipe for this cool new dish? Caldwell is keeping mum about it, for now. But don’t worry, if something comes up, this blog will be the first to tell you.
