    1 of 1 2 of 1

      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.

      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.

      Ugh...Gentleman Jack is back. Ran out of videos of Stephen Harper to masturbate too and shows up on here again.

      We've had enough of the vegans advertorials - more dead animal carcasses please!

      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!
