Lamb Bacon

We first ate house-cured lamb bacon at Terra Bistro in Vail. It was a garnish on another dish and it was a show-stopper. We scoured the web to find a purveyor and couldn't find lamb bacon online. We special ordered it from our "Artisan Meat and Seafood" shop in the Valley called Cut (56 Edwards Village Blvd., #105, Edwards, CO 81632, tel. 970-926-3007). They were able to source it somewhere around Denver. It was $12 a pound and delicious--maybe a little saltier than what we ate at Terra Bistro. But definitely worth trying.
