The Baconing

All the bacony goodness in Brunswick East.

Ever wished your Manhattan would come with a hint of bacon and walnut bitters? Well, now you do. And you'll get the chance to try one with all-Americana joint The B.East mixing up Big Mama Thorntons for this year's Melbourne Food and Wine Festival: a crispy, bacon-infused Buffalo Trace Bourbon bastardised take on the classic cocktail. With the help of Istra Smallgoods, they’ve also created three smokey courses of bacony glory. We're talking maple bacon donuts with free-range pork crackling, bacon and sage-stuffed pork belly with bacon bone gravy, and a decadent bacon and dulce de leche ice-cream. 

PBS Radio Funk and Soul DJs will be spinning tunes with live bands keeping the party rolling from late.The menu will be available all day on Saturday, March 5. You can just rock up or buy a ticket beforehand for $53, which will get you all three courses of bacon goodness and a beer or cider.
