Sometimes a great notion takes root in our minds and demands to become a reality. The Delray Beach Bacon & Bourbon Festival is one of those great notions that has sprung into life!
Three years in development, from the fertile minds of the folks who bring you the annual Delray Beach Garlic Fest and the Delray Beach Wine & Seafood Festival, the Bacon & Bourbon Festival shines a loving light on our most flavorful food-Bacon, and the quintessential American liquor, Bourbon.
We bring you a wide ranging menu of bacon and pork related dished from the sublime (Braised Pork Bellies with Tamari, Garlic, Ginger & Chili Peppers) to the insane (Bacon Ice Cream anyone?). Menu items developed by chefs exploring the boundaries of New American Cuisine and the Farm to Table movement to good old fashioned comfort foods, just like Mom used to make!
Completing the palate pleasing properties of bacon, we also bring to you an eclectic selection of bourbon and whiskeys. The distiller’s art and patient techniques are shared in a series of seminars and tastings. All intended to enhance your knowledge and pleasure of American made Bourbon and whiskey. Although, we may throw an Irish-made whiskey into the mix for historical purposes.
Come join us March 2015 for a culinary journey with a pig and a barrel in beautiful downtown Delray Beach. We’ve cleared it with your doctor, your cardiologist and your mother so “Come and sow your wild oats!’ at the Delray Beach Bacon & Bourbon Festival.
