Honey Butter hosts Bacon Month event; Baconfest on April 17-18

On April 4, Honey Butter Fried Chicken held a class at Whole Foods, 1101 S. Canal St., in conjunction with Bacon Month.

Honey Butter chefs Joshua Kulp and Christine Cikowski entertained attendees with humor ( with Kulp saying, "Let's just get this out of the way: I'm Jewish and I'm eating bacon" ) and, of course, good food. The duo prepared three dishes—bacon, goat-cheese and kale frittata; collards with bacon and preserved lemon; and apple-bacon dump cake—paired with beer samples from Lagunitas Brewing Company.

Baconfest Chicago sponsors Bacon Month activities. This year's Baconfest Chicago will take place Friday-Saturday, April 17-18, at the UIC Forum, 725 W. Roosevelt Rd. ( Depending on demand, a fourth session may be added on Sunday, April 19. )

There will again be three sessions: Friday dinner ( 6-7 p.m. for VIPs; 7-10 p.m. for general admission ); Saturday lunch ( 11 a.m.-12 p.m. for VIPs; 12-3 p.m. for the public ); and Saturday dinner ( 6-7 p.m. for VIPs; 7-10 p.m. for general admission ).

Hundreds of chefs and restaurants will again take part.
