I think we could all use a palate cleanser

And what better substance with which to cleanse our palates than...BACON?!!!

Roland Kopecky won the title of Bacon King after showing up at Saturday’s BaconCamp with an original dish called Loaded Bacon Pirogies.

And he has his unborn child to thank.

“The idea came from my pregnant girlfriend, who is craving all types of things,” he said. “And she came up with a loaded baked-potato pirogi.”

Turns out, Donna Tate’s cravings were spot on, as the potato-and-bacon-stuffed pirogi—whose dough, by the way, was made with bacon fat—stole the show at Columbus’s first ever BaconCamp. The event was held at Wild Goose Creative, a nonprofit arts group located at 2491 Summit St.
There's lots more bacony goodness at the link, including "Double-Decker Bacon Tacos." I'm pretty sure that's what they serve every night for dinner in Heaven.

Oh, and the most surprising thing? The whole BaconCamp concept originated  in...San Francisco. Didn't see that one coming.
