From Publishers Weekly
In this exuberant parade of pork fat, there is no doubting the flap copy when it states that Villas, former food editor for Town & Country, has been beguiled by bacon since he was a boy. However, Villas's statement in his preface that staunch vegetarians and non-pork-eating religious traditionalists are haunted instinctively by the sensuous, irresistible enticement is about as nutty as his Bacon-Almond Cheese Spread (made with cottage cheese and chives). Nonetheless, there's plenty good to be had in these pages. An introductory chapter explains the difference between Salt Pork and Pancetta, Paprikaspeck and Bauchspeck, and provides a thorough list of mail-order sources. Breakfast choices range from a nifty ole Bacon Scrapple to a rich French Cheese and Bacon soufflé. There's a BLT, of course, but most of his other sandwiches go to extremes with ingredients like Jamaican smoked fish. For those who sometimes eat vegetables, there is Lima Bean and Bacon Casserole, and several amalgams mix a menagerie of meats, as in the Spanish Chicken, Bacon, Meatball and Chickpea Stew. Of the six dessert recipes, bacon-wrapped figs work, but Bacon and Peanut Butter Chocolate Truffles would be hard-pressed to create irresistible enticement in even the heartiest of carnivores. (Oct.)

“there is nothing standard about Villas book…shows the versatility of bacon…Vegetarians beware; these dishes could prove too tempting.” (Independent, September 13, 2008)

I am lucky enough to live in a place in which I can get a pretty wide variety of bacons, including Eastern European and Asian, but not so lucky looking for the different bacons of Canada or the British Isles (including Ireland). That means I have to order online, something I'm a tad reluctant to do with perishable foods. That's my problem and my loss, though, not the author's.
The greatest fault I find with the book is that in many recipes, bacon is used in trivial amounts--two slices for six people? They're recipes for dishes that use bacon as an accent, not the featured item. I'd have like to have seen more recipes for things like boiled bacon or confit of bacon.
But, if you love bacon, you really can't go far wrong with this book!
He called me going on and on and on about his new cookbook, how much he had wanted, how good it looked reading through it. He's pretty finicky like a kitty, so I'd say ... buy it and this seller delivered appropriately and on time.
An attractive cookbook with a treasure trove inside.
(If you don't like where it comes from...THEN DON'T EAT IT!!!)
To my fellow bacon lovers...enjoy the variety of recipes.
