This year, I’m introducing a brand new category in the end of year posts. Anyone who reads this blog regularly or follows me on social media will know that I fancy bacon way too much. The point of this post is not just to highlight bacon in its regular use, but in a way that goes above and beyond. Here, you will see the 3 items that best exemplify and most creatively use that element that we all love so much.

Summer 2012 has been a very busy time for the GBS. On top of getting a lot of burgering done, I’ve been checking off a shortlist of 5 places that I had to get through before the vacation ended. That list started off at 4 places, but as time went, detailed accounts of an epic sandwich forced me to put one more item on my radar. So, for the third time this summer, I found myself at Parc Émilie-Gamelin, where the La Mangeoire would be located for the day.

Recently, I was given an invitation to a restaurant to try something I haven’t done in almost 20 years, brunch. Brunch is not something that I will go out of my way to go get, though it’s something that I’ve been thinking more and more about over the last few years. Well, there was no better time than the present to cross that bridge than at Café Grand in an area of the island of Montreal known affectively as N.D.G.
