Our extensive and ongoing charcuterie project is about to pick up steam as we’re due to receive a pork belly tomorrow which will be cured for one week, washed, smoked for two hours, rested for one day, chilled, then ran across our big, electric deli slicer.
The result will be the best bacon New Orleans has ever seen.
