mmm.... bacon  
Is there a difference between Irish bacon and British bacon?

What a truly rivetting thread james-nicoll started. Wasted half a morning. Were you able to see a consensus running through the thread? It seemed more to me a matter of cooking and purpose with no clear answer.
Did you ever try bacon when you were in NZ? We think ours is pretty good stuff but I have a sneaky feeling that some of our pork is imported.

He has a habit of doing that. Lots of intelligent people who like to discuss things follow him. It's more often about science fiction than bacon though.

I don't think this discussion has changed anyone's mind!

I did. I probably had it in other dishes, but the one I remember was pancakes, maple syrup, bacon and bananas. I enjoyed it, but it was such a strange combination for me that I couldn't eat a mouthful that had both bacon and banana in it.

Oh! My dear. You don't know what you missed. Nectar from the Gods even with NZ bacon.

Re: I couldn't eat a mouthful
Well, I can tell you that pancake, syrup and banana were delicious together, as were pancake, syrup and bacon.

It's hard to get the thick pancakes here, esp with bacon. I miss it.
