General Tao BaconCooking with bacon is a favourite activity for most Canadian chefs, and pork belly dishes are becoming more andmore common. What you are looking for from your butcher is a raw, uncured or smoked pork belly. Once braised,the meat is incredibly tender, and new flavours can be added. Inspired by a dish of General Tao chicken, the saucebelow has essences of ginger, sesame and garlic that work unbelievably well when glazed over the succulent pork belly. It is great as an appetizer with an Asian flavoured coleslaw, but if served with sticky rice it makes a fine main course as well.
"Cooking locally and seasonally isn't a trend. It's the way it's always been. And this will always be true of great food.
