International Bacon Day. 31st August 2013.
Date: Friday, August 16, 2013
Whether your choice is thick chunks of fresh white bread or a fresh bap, smothered with sauce or defiantly plain, the adored bacon sandwich has been tipped as Britain’s No 1 Treasure. In a recent survey of 60,000 Britons, it pipped the English countryside, a cup of tea and fish and chips to top spot, even beating the Queen to 15th place. With over £2 billion spent on this humble cured meat every year in this country, one in ten of us chose bacon as our favourite food according to Food Network UK.
