We already told you about what a creative bartender Charles Fields from Rumba is, but who knew he's such a baconnoisseur?
Well, apparently everyone who attended the recent "Bacon Takedown" contest held on September 13 at Aerial downtown. The event is a spin-off of the Chili Takedowns which started in Brooklyn in 2005 and have turned into a nationwide phenomenon expanding from just the world of chili into the universe of fondue, salsa, cookies and everybody's favorite pork product-BACON!
In an unheard of double victory, Charles took first prize in both the People's Choice and the Judges' awards at the Takedown with his Bacon Bread Pudding. Here's Charles with Takedown organizer and emcee Matt Timms.And here's hoping that bread pudding recipe makes it onto the menu at Rumba sometime soon!
Head over to the official Takedown site for more pictures and the complete results. They promise to return to Nashville soon. So represent, people!
