There is so much more to bacon cuisine than the BLT. Chicago’s Baconfest gives many of Chicago’s top chefs the chance to create some creative and delicious dishes, resulting in hundreds of bacon dishes to try. Tickets for the festival start at $100 and give you unlimited dishes from chef and bacon samples, as well as seven drink tickets. Additionally, Baconfest partners with the Greater Chicago Food Depository, with a portion of the proceeds going to this organization to help end hunger in Chicago. They are also having a food drive at the event, so make sure to bring some non-perishable goods!
