Hello Bacon Nation,

Last night, at Maison Brasserie, a group of intrepid bacon explorers were treated to a culinary odyssey so steeped in bacony goodness, it was gloriously… overwhelming (in the best possible way).  Thank you Chef Perry Hendrix and Owners Sue Kim-Drohomyrecky and Peter Drohomyrecky for hosting such an amazing evening!  If any one out there reading this has yet to visit the elegant Maison Brasserie, you should fix that asap.  It’s in the Lakeshore East neighborhood above Randolph Street, and I’m not gonna lie, it takes some concentration to locate if you’ve never been there before.  But it is SOOOO worth the trip.  Such a beautiful place to have a meal and the food is out of this world.  (See the picture recap below.)

Ok, so onward!  There are only TWO more BFC Satellite Dinners to go:  Next Monday December 10th at RED DOOR is the last Baconfest Chicago Satellite Dinner of this calendar year.  And the Three Aces Dinner is on January 14th.


RED DOOR RESTAURANT hosted by 4 year Baconfest Chicago Veteran (and one of the original 10 Bacon Cylons) Chef Troy Graves!

Monday, 12/10/12.  6pm passed apps and cocktails.  7pm Dinner.

Call (773) 697-7221 to make your reservation.  Or email:  rsvp@reddoorchicago.com.  $55 per person, not including tax/gratuity (aperitif and cocktail included, additional beverages ala carte).  IT IS A STEAL!

Here are just some highlight pics from last night at Maison Brasserie:

Again, shout out to our sponsors Nueske’s Applewood Smoked Meats, Candid Wines, and Templeton Rye (the “bacon old-fashioneds”  by Adam Seger were INCREDIBLE!)

Chilled Mussles with Bacon Aioli:

The Bacon Pate rocked us:

Tarte flambe, Creme Fraiche, Caramelized Onions & Bacon

Handmade Garlic Sausage, Braised Bacon, Riesling Braised Cabbage

And to top it all off, they had a band “Woodard Hart” who were fantastic!

Just an incredible evening at Maison Brasserie.  Thanks again to Chef Perry Hendrix and team for a delightful and delicious evening!
