Nasty or Not?: Bacon and Cheese Roll

In the first segment of Nasty or Not?, I will look at this creation by dan from foodproof.

I'm not sure why anyone would want to eat a couple pounds of bacon and cheese, but the creation process is pretty ingenious. One bacon slice is about 50 calories and one cup of chedder is 532 calories (there seems to be a little more than one cup in there). Even being conservative, that's 1082 calories. The average daily calorie intake is 1940 calories per day for women and 2550 for men.

Do you think it's nasty? Would you ever try it? I know I would try a TINY TINY piece. Then throw up.

A good story

GK Chesterton: “The poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese.”

Voila: www.tastingtoeternity.com. This book is a poetic view of 30 of the best loved French cheeses with an additional two odes to cheese. Recipes, wine pairing, three short stories and an educational section complete the book.

From a hectic life in New York City to the peace and glories of the French countryside lead me to be the co-founder of www.fromages.com. Ten years later with the words of Pierre Androuet hammering on my brain:

“Cheese is the soul of the soil. It is the purest and most romantic link between humans and the earth.”

I took pen and paper; many reams later with the midnight oil burning Tasting to Eternity was born and self published.

I believe cheese and wine lovers should be told about this publication.

Enjoy
