For those looking to get their bacon fix early, Nana executive chef Jeremy Kiens will offer diners a preview of his bacon-focused appetizer starting Saturday.
The $7 appetizer includes a bacon fat-fried house-made durro with medium grain whole-wheat flour topped with a warm bacon salad of house-smoked bacon, red onions, avocado, roasted bell peppers and cilantro with fresh lime juice and salsa-infused vinegar.
Baconfest Chicago will be held at the UIC Forum, 725 W. Roosevelt Road, on April 17-18. The annual Bacon festival supports the Greater Chicago Food Depository.
