Celebrate International Bacon Day!

Is a holiday real just because you can find it on Wikipedia? When bacon’s concerned, who really cares whether or not International Bacon Day truly was conceived by a bunch of (presumably) drunk undergrads in 2004 at CU Boulder in Colorado?

Ask Chef Mike: Salt Slab Grilling

In Cooking Guide, Recipes by Mike StinesLeave a Comment

Q: What do you think about cooking on a salt slab and what would you use one for?
A: Salt slab cooking has become the latest “trendy” way to cook food… similar to the way plank cooking and “stone grill” cooking was a few years ago. The concept is simple: you preheat a block of Himalayan salt to a screaming high temperature on your grill, oven or stovetop and cook whatever you like. During cooking, the food picks up salt from the block so you don’t need to salt your food before cooking.
