Nick from DudeFoods (previously featured here) is a bacon wizard. Everything he’s made using bacon has made our mouths water and this latest creation is no exception. Behold the dainty, decadent glory of Bacon Weave S’mores. They’re like traditional s’mores with one meaty exception: Instead of graham crackers, the melted chocolate and marshmallow are sandwiched between two heavenly pieces of woven bacon strips.
"I made each square the exact same size as half of a Hershey’s Chocolate bar, which as you can see from the photos ended up being three pieces of bacon by two pieces of bacon. Since I didn’t need full slices of bacon for the squares either I was able to create two complete squares from just five pieces of bacon by cutting each one in half first.
Since the chocolate and marshmallow melt so easily that if you make these you’ll want to make sure that your bacon weave squares are completely cooked before you add the two final ingredients. After adding the chocolate and marshmallow it was just a quick 30 seconds in the microwave until my Bacon Weave S’mores were ready to eat!”

As we’ve posted before, local Seattle grocery store chain Uwajimaya has some of the most talented butchers/sculptures in the world. Well, they’ve started a Tumblr called EpicGrinds to feature the work of their Meat Manager, Kieran Gormley. As you can see above, he has managed to depict everything from an American flag to Dragon Ball Z using ground meat as his medium. We challenge him to do the Archie McPhee Meat Parade!
Here’s another great way to celebrate International Bacon Day: cover your car in mouthwatering bacon graphics. Ford Motor Company just announced that they’re offering custom bacon graphics for the 2014 Ford Fiesta. Wrap your car in 12 succulent rashers of bacon or just add a few slick bacon racing strips or side strips. If those options feel a bit ostentatious for your taste, you can also order mini strips as a subtler way to tout your love of cured pork. Mmm… Bacon.

While there is post-production work done to enhance these wonderfully surreal scenes, most of the work is painstakingly (and mouthwateringly) done using real food. Here you see the Candy Cottage, The Great Wall of Pineapple, the Chocolate Express, the Meat Factory, and the Salmon Sea. Each Foodscape looks like a dream come true. We’re getting hungry just looking at them.

When a ground pork robot faces off against a ground beef robot, who will emerge victorious? We aren’t sure, but we’re guessing the leftovers will be delicious either way.

Hey look, it’s fine art made with lunch meat! Photographer Karsten Wegener, designer Silke Baltruschat, and food stylist Raik Holst collaborated on an awesome series of photos entitled Sausage in Art. The trio combined their creative skills to recreate classic works of art using smoked and cured meats. These two pieces are our favourites - meat renditions of Jeff Koons' famous Balloon Dog and Vincent van Gogh’s iconic Sunflowers.
