Bacon lovers of Sydney, grab your forks and get down to Cuckoo Callay’s Bacon Festival
Ladies and gentleman, we have an announcement to make. For the third year running, popular Newtown cafe Cuckoo Callay are bringing you Bacon Festival! Cuckoo Callay have devised a selection of nine limited edition bacon-based dishes, each giving a nod to the film industry. Their names alone guarantee a healthy dose of breakfast time laughter.
For all your swine needs take your pick from the pen. On the menu this year at Cuckoo Callay’s Bacon Festival is- drum roll….
Close Encounters of the Bacon Mind – bacon will definitely be the only thing on your mind after pigging out to this porky creation, featuring four forms of bacon. Yes, we said four. Served on sourdough with two poached eggs, you’ll find the likes of bacon steak, maple bacon, double smoked bacon and a bacon sausage. Now that’s a lot of pork on your fork.
Silence of the Hams – a ham hock and vintage cheddar croquette (wow), topped with pea pannacotta, side saddled by bacon jam and a 63° poached egg.
Reservoir Hogs – not just your average breakfast burrito. Bundled up in a sheath of crispy bacon lies pork chilli, black beans, American cheese, avocado salsa and sour cream. Providing the perfect porky ambush to your day.
Frankenswine – Cuckoo Callay’s Bacon Festival mozzarella stick is a revelation variation. Bacon wrapped mozzarella is smothered in a crunchy Dorrito crumb and deep fried to golden perfection. Dip this gooey goddess into a side of spicy sauce and let your tastebuds do the talking.
Slumhog Millionaire – it’s sloppy, oozy, and bulging. This BBQ pulled pork stunner is served on a black bun with double smoked bacon, onion rings, slaw, chipotle and cheddar cheese.
Black Swine – simple yet extremely addictive. Sporting both guile and grace, this stack of fries topped with mac ‘n’ cheese, bacon and shallots is much more than meets the eye.
Jurassic Pork – For a fresher, more sophisticated approach to Bacon Festival, go bacon-less. Break away from the crowd with this juicy pork belly with cherries, Granny Smith apple puree, apple pickle and fennel salad.
Let’s bow our heads for a moment of silence in remembrance of last year’s Bacon Festival favourite – the Mac Daddy. Now, raise your heads and ‘jump, jump’ as the boss hog of all things bacon, the one and only Mac Daddy, makes a reappearance! This porker of a croissant is filled to capacity with double smoked bacon, oozing bacon mac ‘n’ cheese, tomato relish, with a 63° egg dolloped within. To finish it off, a generous addition of fried shallots is sprinkled on top.
Having launched on the 14th March, you have 12 weeks to find time for a whole lot of swine. Going beyond bacon appreciation, Cuckoo Callay will be once again sourcing their produce from local farms engaging in ethical and sustainable practices. As you will be supporting the local farming industry, we hope to see you there, pigging out with purpose!
