I first learned about Bacon Marmalade from Liza de Guia’s (@SkeeterNYC) video blog, food. curated. According to the video, Bacon Marmalade was born out of a kitchen “mistake” made by Chef Ross Hutchison of Brooklyn, NYC. If there’s such a thing as a “good mistake,” this is probably it.
Now if you’ve read this blog before, then you know that I love bacon. You probably also know that the first thought that entered my mind was “I need this in my life.”
Since Manila isn’t exactly next door neighbors with New York, I knew that it might be a while before I could get my hands on a bottle. So, I made like Pedro Cerrano and said: “Fuck you, Jobu. I do it myself.”
And I did.
