Edible Canada pays tribute to Canadian bacon all summer

The take-out window at Edible Canada at Granville Island (1596 Johnston Street) opened Friday (May 18), and this year’s seasonal menu is dedicated to bacon.

“Coast to Coast—A Canadian Tribute to Bacon” will feature dishes and ingredients from across the country using 100 percent Canadian bacon. The menu includes a West Coast Cobb salad ($10) with bacon lardons, heirloom tomatoes, Quebec blue cheese, and smoked salmon; bacon and duck rillettes poutine ($8.50) with Canadian cheese curds and caramelized onions; Two Rivers all-beef and bacon whistle dog ($8) with smoked Canadian cheddar, fried onions, and bacon jam; a BLLT ($12), which is a bacon, lettuce, lobster, and tomato sandwich; crispy fish and bacon tacos ($7) with Ontario pickerel, apple radish slaw, and spicy mango; and Box o’ Bacon ($8), which includes six strips of pepper candied bacon with a rye chocolate ganache dipping sauce.

A bacon-themed dessert menu includes a bacon cinnamon sticky bun ($5) from Gastown’s Cadeaux Bakery, chocolate-bacon gelato from Bella Gelateria ($5.50), and “To Die For” bacon banana bread with whipped maple butter ($6).

The “Coast to Coast—A Canadian Tribute to Bacon” menu will be available all summer at Edible Canada’s take-out window only, which is only daily from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Bacon is a product of one of the most despicably cruel industries on Earth. Its spurious image feeds denial of suffering on an unimaginable scale.

We should have a "Celebrate Dog Meat" festival as well. Considering that these animals are virtually equal in intelligence, why not.

Don't eat bacon if you're against it and then please shut up. Do I tell you what to eat? No, because I generally mind my own business like adults of yesteryear.

Everyone isn't you.

Because it
isn't just about what you eat, moron. It's about obscene cruelty. You call it 'bacon' but actually it's the flesh of living things that are slaughtered in their untold millions so that pigs like you can fill your ugly face. Minding your own business justifies a Suidae holocaust? What an idiot.

@Because it

Let us not forget the Cabbage Holocaust, my brother. Have you not heard the screams of the cabbage is it is dropped into the water to be boiled? Comrades, this need not be. If the Capitalists did not raise us to believe that we needed to eat their food, I have it on good authority that we could subsist wholly on a diet of oral progressive propaganda---so no more dead tree books, either!

You're the idiot, because it, divorced from your genetic heritage as a hunter. Your family loves you, even if you are one of our retarded members.

@because it - Taking the (supposed) higher ground kind of loses some of its nobility when you're going off like a hot-head. I thought salads were supposed to bliss you out.

the sanctimonious attitude of vegan types is annoying. reminds me of the joke:

"How many vegans does it take to change a lightbulb?
None, vegans can't change anything."

If you don't like to eat meat, then don't. Sick of holier than thou trust fund types trying to impose their values on others.

Well, gotta go to Burger King for a whopper, nom nom!

Not Against Meat
Wow, people get so defensive when it comes to what they eat!

The problem with eating as much meat as we're currently eating has more to do with the enviromental impacts and the ethical treatment of animals and less to do with vegans or vegetarians judging people that eat meat. The act of consuming the flesh of another animal isn't wrong; the way in which we raise and kill animals is the problem. There's a middle ground to be had here. Everything in moderation! Eating meat (or vegan protein) at every meal isn't healthy (no matter where it comes from).

When you label all vegans as "holier than thou" it makes you look ignorant. They aren't all like that.

@not against meat - I don't think anyone is calling for bacon at every meal here and even carnivores are able to understand the concept of balance and moderation. Also, Two Rivers meats is sourced in the article, so I'd recommend looking into what they do before the non-carnivores here start insinuating that the article is a big happy shout-out to factory slaughter and we're all bathing in the blood of swine.

Homer: As long as you live in my house you will live by my rules. Now boy, butter up that bacon.

Bart: But dad..

Homer: Do it..

*Bart butters his bacon*

Homer: Now... Bacon that sausage.

Bart: But dad, my heart hurts.

*Homer looks at Bart sternly and Bart wraps bacon around the sausage and eats it*

@Xander - Exactly! Wake up, people - time to evolve. Do you want those sultrates and nifrates all over you? How disgusting. They go right ON you if you eat them. They get all over everything and even your hair will be full of bacon bits! Everyone here needs to stop eating an entire pig at every meal as is obviously the case if you eat any bacon ever!
