Christmas has arrived early

The day I anticipate all year came last night when I found the latest Grateful Palate catalog in my mailbox. Dan Philips, a.k.a Captain Bacon, is the genius behind the Bacon of the Month Club. The guy that travels all over the country to bring us the finest specimens of bacon. His Grateful Palate catalog is beautifully designed and the mouthwatering descriptions of the bacon offerings are as sophisticated as wine tasting notes.

I urge everyone who isn’t already on their mailing list to sign up (the new catalog site doesn’t look like it’s up yet, but check back—it’s worth it).

Captain Bacon also co-hosts Aphrodisiac Bacon Dinners for those lucky enough to live in Washington DC. Maybe I should move there. It would be like Christmas once a month.

    Hi—I am Pete Wells (yes, you caught me Googling myself, I swear it was for a reason). And I promise you that I am not the genius behind the Bacon of the Month Club. That would be Dan Philips, a/k/a Captain Bacon. I only wrote about him in Food & Wine magazine (link provided.) Dan is a great American and I only wish I had done something for the world as great as found the BOMC.
