Bacon is the new quinoa


Turns out that David Cope was right all along.  Bacon is the new ubercool must-buy for hipsters.  Food|Wine|Design is hog heaven this year.  Exhibit A is Linda Coltart’s Bacon of the Month butty stand.  This GM of Le Quartier Francais was my recommendation to Hannes Myburgh of Meerlust fame when he expressed a desire for breakfast.

Linda confirms that wine sales at LQF are under pressure. But whether this is because of the rise-and-rise of craft beers or the decision to only list Franschhoekfranschhoekcellarwines Bacon is the new quinoa

wines, is unclear. Perhaps they should stock some Riebeek Cellars wines and see if sales improve.

Meanwhile Hannes is rushed off his feet. Confirming Food|Wine|Design as the hippest wine retail opportunity of the wine calender. Makes RMB WineX look so dated.

Richard Bosman is rushed off his feet. With 15 kinds of bacon of his stand – with Pancetta, Copa, Proscuitto, Cacciatorini, Salami, Cabanossi, Lomo and Salsiccia, Dick has his elegant finger on the honking heart of Jozi. Hog heaven in Hyde Park.
