BBDO and Hormel Foods sponsor Twin Cities Bacon Takedown

The king of amateur cook-offs, Matt Timms, is bringing his gig to the Twin Cities. Following recent bacon showdowns in Brooklyn, Houston, and SXSW, Bacon Takedown Twin Cities will take place in O'Gara's in St. Paul on July 18 at 4pm.

Timms is looking to pit 20 local cooks and their best bacon recipes against one another. Each contestant gets 15 pounds of Hormel Black Label Bacon to work their magic with and then brings the completed dish to the event for judging. At the event, observers can sample the results, which means a feast including everything from bacon bloody Mary's to bacon ice cream to Molten Bacon Explosions, and more! Over $1500 in prizes from Anolon, Wusthof and Microplane.

$15 to come on down and try all the Hormel Bacon magic. A portion of the proceeds goes to Feeding America.
