San Diego Fair in Del Mar, California

We decided we had such a great time last year that we would return to the San Diego Fair in Del Mar, California once again and work at Bacon A Fair.  Opening day is not until June 8th but we had to be here for Media Day so we got here early enough to help with that and to hire employees.  There will be 2 locations this year so we have to hire an additional 60 to fill both Bacon A Fair stands and the Mexican Funnel Cake stand for counter staff and some help on the BBQ’s.

On Media Night we served a few of our newly added menu items that were a wild success.  Anything wrapped in bacon is perfect anyway but these combinations are just delicious.

Wild Boar Bacon Kabobs - What a huge hit and a perfect addition to this year’s menu. Peppers, Onions, Pineapples are skewed along with Wild Boar Bacon that is marinated in a wonderfully tangy sauce; additional seasons are then added and then grilled to perfection.  The sweetness of the pineapple and the tanginess of the sauce with the lean flavoring of the boar bacon is a great mixture of flavor that awakens all your flavor buds simultaneously.

Cheesy Bacon Bombs – Pepper Jack Cheese chunks wrapped with biscuit dough then slices of bacon surrounds it all, then deep fried and drizzled with garlic butter.  Your mouth waters just speaking about them but when you bite into it, the zesty cheese along with the garlic butter just melts in your mouth and leaves you wanting more.

Bacon Beer – You heard right, a Root Beer with a Bacon twist.  A little dab of special syrup and root beer poured over ice with pieces of bacon included is a novelty drink and there were very mixed opinions of whether it was loved or not.  For me it was one of those things to try but to drink over and over, I would not but Jerry loved it and would drink it regularly.

Most of our old favorites are still on the menu and will be served this year too.  We will still have our huge Turkey Leg wrapped with about a pound of Bacon and smoked for hours.  The Portabella Button Mushrooms stuffed with Gouda Cheese, wrapped with Bacon and grilled to absolute perfection.  And, of course the all-time favorite of so many, pieces of well cooked Bacon, dipped in Chocolate and chilled for an absolutely marvelous sweet/salty tasting Chocolate Covered Bacon.

We hope to have some time to do some writing but it might be tough when we are working 12+ hour days, six days a week, but we will try to keep you all updated.
