BACONFEST CHICAGO 2012 (Saturday, April 14 2012)

It’s that time of year again…Saigon Sisters is proud to be a part of this year’s Bacon Fest! A day-long celebration of the decadent meat that’s not just for breakfast anymore. Chef Matt Riordan has assembled a delicious snack for the festival that shows off a bacon twist to our Vietnamese cooking: The Nueske’s Bacon Pho. A bowl of specially-made black garlic and tamarind noodles is complemented by pickled eggs, microgreens, and hearty Nueske’s bacon.

After trying our special pho, there’s plenty of other treats to try. In addition to a host of butchers and smokehouses, there will be sweets from Vosges, House of Caramel, Rich Chocolates, and Jo Snow syrups. And sponsors Greenbush Brewing, Templeton Rye, and Goose Island will make sure there’s plenty to wet your whistle. For more information, visit http://baconfestchicago.com

The second annual Pastoral Artisan Producer Festival will be held on Saturday, April 28th, 2012 in the French Market. Over seventy cheesemongers, distilleries, breweries, vineyards, confectioners, bakers and other fine food producers will be showing off their goods to Chicago, including Saigon Sisters. For this event, we will be partnering with our good friends at the Phoenix Bean Tofu Company, who provide the sprouts and tofu used in many of our dishes. We will also sell the new hot off the press  “Asian Tofu” book by Andrea Nguyen so you can take home and try in your own kitchen. Our regular menu will be available for purchase and we also do the Banh bao only on Saturday at the market.
