It’s the cornerstone of any self-respecting diet. Now, Cuckoo Callay is celebrating the noble pig with the launch of their inaugural Bacon Festival — an event that’s sure to sizzle. Starting February 9, the Newtown cafe will modify their menu, showcasing the best our porky pals have to offer. There’ll be bacon burgers, bacon ice cream and even a bacon Bloody Mary.

Sourcing their pork from Marrickville-based suppliers Black Forest Smokehouse, the Cuckoo chefs have put together eight delectable dining options, none of which sound remotely good for your heart. The Ultimate Bacon Breakfast features five different types of pig, including bacon steak and bespoke bacon sausage. The Piggy Popcorn chicken brioche burger, meanwhile, is a veritable farmhouse reunion.

In case your arteries weren't strained enough, there's also a selection of sweeter options, such as Cuckoo’s Bacon Waffles. Naturally, they come topped with bacon caramel ice cream and rashers covered in chocolate. The cafe's got you covered on the beverage front as well, with an absurd bacon milkshake to accompany their bacon cocktail.

Suffice it to say, the Bacon Festival is not vegetarian friendly. Keep your snouts on the Cuckoo Callay Facebook page for the full menu, which is set to be made available in early February.
