Today at the bakery: a maple bacon French macaron. Pretty damn delicious, too.

    Crispy pig lettuce wraps. Pig is the new chicken.

      Which bakery? Masse's was selling those a couple of years ago, so the curve was back down the line in the Bay Area.

        But can you deep fry it?

          Was the bacon humanely raised by an artisanal producer from Brooklyn?

            I prefer free-range pork, fairly traded, and raised by a wizened abuelita in Bolivia. And the maple must spring from an organic plot 28 miles west-northwest of Montpelier. Terroir, dontchaknow.

              Was watching an episode of tripleD on Food where i saw this guy from Vancouver BC make a confit of pork belly then deep fried each portion!

              That should be close to the apothosis!

                I've eaten there -- it was delicious, especially with hollandaise! But that's only ONE food trend -- the bacon macaron was two!

                  Bacon macaron cupcake?

                Unless what you had was a foam placed upon a lattice of Sriracha, it couldn't have been the apotheosis.
