I LOVE BACON!!! Just the thought of crispy, delicious, mouth-watering goodness of bacon, makes me salivate and put a huge smile on my face whenever I #BiteTheLove
It's my favorite indulgent and delicious treat for breakfast. BACON makes me HAPPY with simply just frying then eat it with egg and garlic rice. 

But it was inspiring to do more in preparing and eating bacon in many different ways when I attended this mouthwatering event to kick off BACONFEST MANILA in partnership with PUREFOODS® Thick Cut Bacon and Maple Bacon

The event was held at Torch in the Ground Level of Greenbelt 5. It was so good when I was walking on my way to the restaurant I was able to smell the bacon in the air.  Yum! 

The event was full of fun and surprises. Aside from eating so much yummy bacon during the event, I also had the best time of my life when we were teamed up to a cook-off challenge.  
Our team is called "Bring Home the Bacon" and prepared a dish using PUREFOODS®Thick Cut Bacon in Honey Roast.  

PUREFOODS® Honey Roast Bacon is a sweet, savory and smoky goodness that will surely brighten up any meal, anytime of the day! 

Our team was assigned to cook a very interesting and delicious dish called Bacon Crusted Pork Medallions with Apple Chutney. Sadly, we didn't win the challenge but this has been a fun, challenging and rewarding experience. 
Cooking the tastiest and yummiest bacon!

I highly recommend everyone to try cooking Bacon Crusted Pork Medallions with Apple Chutney with PUREFOODS®Thick Cut Bacon. I will try to update later with the recipe!
