Baconcamp 2009: Postscript instead of Post Mortem

Posted by cmh gourmand on August 1, 2009

I survived sampling seventeen plus items as a Baconcamp judge – turnout was 150 plus. Based on feedback – it is safe to assume Baconcamp will be back next year.

There was a wide variety of people in attendance well outside the interlocking Venn diagrams of Columbus Underground, Wild Goose Creative and the foodanistas of Columbus. The flashes were flying at Wild Goose Creative so check Twitter, Flickr and other social media for Baconcamp images and stories.

One link to click for sure is
Nikon Girl, Jen Killius.

Here are my photos from the event, I am still in a bacon based stupor so writing is not an option (or ambulation but then a rational person would not have gone to a taco truck afterwords for a bacon wrapped hot dog; it is a sickness….they say). Entries in Baconcamp had the chance of winning prizes.

Food categories - Most likely to cause a heart attack & least likely to care;  Most likely to make a Vegan a Bacon

Baconcamp was not just about the science of bacon cookery, it was a celebration of the art of bacon consumption.
