Vegetarians, be warned: The glorious smell of bacon wafting out of the Bell House this afternoon may instantly convert you to omnivorousness. The fifth annual Brooklyn Bacon Takedown is a chance for home cooks to get creative with one of the best-tasting foods on earth. According to host Matt Timms, “Apparently anything can be infused, filled, wrapped, and garnished with bacon, and it will improve that thing mightily.” Take, for instance, a sarsaparilla-bacon root beer float from a previous takedown that made Timms want to “cry happy tears.” After you sample every last dish, vote for the one that makes you cry happy tears of your own.
