Stuff I've traded for a kilo of bacon



3kg of Cheese – Udder Delights


If there’s one food I love as much as smallgoods, it’s Cheese! Some years ago I did a cheese making class with Sheree from Udder Delights, and every now and then when my work and bacon commitments allow it, I whip up a batch of fetta or camembert. It’s not bad, but it’s not brilliant…think i’ll stick to making bacon.

$60 of Red Rooster – Matt & Andrew


I met Matt a few months back at a friend’s wedding; we had a few beers, talked a bit of trash, and generally bonded over a mutual love of meat!

Matt and his brother Andrew recently bought the Red Rooster at Castle Plaza, in fact, the shiny new sign out the front of their shop says “Come visit the new Kings of the Castle!”….well, that’s them. If you’re reading this from outside of Australia (wishful thinking on my part) and have never heard of Red Rooster, it’s a fast-food chain of restaurants that sell BBQ chicken and chips, burgers, rolls and salads.

2kg of K.I. Honey + Three Bottles of Wine – Rose & Al

Rose and Al are friends of mine who live in the Adelaide Hills where they regularly enjoy bacon! No joke, I don’t think I know anyone who loves bacon more than Rose, which is awesome. So it was only fitting that my very first T.I.F.B. trade was with her.
