BACON DAY COOKING

Saturday was International Bacon Day and in honour of the occasion I made this from the "cookbook that never lets me down", Marcella Hazan's Marcella Cucina.  I've featured the dish before on the blog but not for four years, so I hope you'll forgive me!  It's Marcella's involtini di maiale - pork escalope rolls filled with slices of wafer-thin pancetta and gherkins. The dish is flavoured with garlic and sage.  I now use canned  pomodorini [cherry tomatoes] in recipes requiring a can of chopped tomatoes:

Another sleepless night for me as I am down to my last two weeks in India. This looks absolutely delicious and I wish someone would have happened by and offered me a sampling. National Bacon Day...ummmm, I do like these special cclebrations. I do know that, when I get home, first order of business is going to be a very RARE steak and some really good wine.
