Superheros in the ‘Taste Hall of Fame’

Friday, July 23rd, 2010

I’d like to nominate a new member to the ‘Taste Hall of Fame’: bacon.  For those unfamiliar with this esteemed institution, the “Hall” is a collection of specific tongue-flavors which contain a certain element that makes food taste great.

Salt and butter were among the original inductees into the “Hall” – and I can taste why.  If you took a bowl of cotton balls and dumped massive amounts of butter and salt on them – I’d eat it.  So would just about everyone else.  No one would think to eat escargot without a heavy butter and garlic sauce.  Why would they?

And now I  believe bacon deserves it’s place in taste history.

Let’s be honest for a minute:  basically bacon is a slab of pig fat with an apologetic little strip of pink meat running down its center so you won’t remember you’re just eating a slab of pig fat.  No one ever orders “A Big Slab of Bacon (‘medium rare, please’) and a baked potato.”

When I was in college I used to love waking up to the smell of bacon and eggs.  It reassured me that once again,  I had passed out in my favorite diner – and no one called the cops.
