As if we need an excuse to eat more bacon but twist our arms because this Saturday, September 4 is National Bacon Day, a great excuse to support Australian farmers and support some top local eateries.
In the lead up to the most delicious day of the year, restaurants and cafés across Sydney have joined the celebration with Jacqui Challinor, Aaron Ward and Daniel Puskas of Sixpenny and Paul Farag among some of the notable chefs helping to hero a local rasher. This weekend you can get some pretty special one off treats.
