Bacon, The Wonder Drug

Cured or uncured, bacon is a cure-all for, well, everything.

Depression. Anxiety. Pink eye. Inflated self-worth. Hemorrhoids. Rabies. You name it, bacon can cure it. You could eat it on a burger, baked potato, or whip it up into the base of a salad dressing. Or, thanks to these aromatic and flavorful spreads, you could eat it right off a spoon or just slather it all over your ailments. Don't believe in the medicinal benefits of bacon? Well, try this historical fact on for size:

You know that old saying, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away"? Well, the true phrase is actually "Two strips a day keeps the doctor away." But in the 1920s, the Apple Farmers of America, facing possible bankruptcy, hijacked it for their marketing efforts. They even got real doctors to back it, even though everyone knows that eating too many apples CAN KILL YOU.

As a result, people have been blindly consuming dangerous fruit instead of delicious pork fat, as nature intended, ever since. It's time to put things right.

Skillet Food Products

Founded:
2007
Owner:
Josh Henderson
Location:
Seattle, WA
In 2007, Chef Josh Henderson created Skillet Street Food in Seattle, one of the first food experiences of what has since become a prototype for the national street food movement that has swept the country. Out of a vintage Airstream trailer, he created innovative lunch menus based on American-inspired food prepared with classic technique and seasonal ingredients. The reception from Seattle'ites was immediate and passionate. They were drawn to the chef driven food, the excitement of being a part of a new, energetic, urban experience, and to the intimate involvement through the use of social media channels that intensified the connection with the Skillet brand.
 
Since then, the business has grown up. Josh is still creating great menus served throughout the streets of Seattle from the Airstream. But Skillet is now much more than that. It is a thriving catering enterprise, supporting weddings, private parties, and corporate events throughout the Pacific Northwest. It is a food products business, distributing its signature Bacon Jam product through retailers across the US and Canada. And, in the Spring of 2011, it will become a brick-and-mortar restaurant located in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood.
 
The original street food business has become a brand but has not strayed from its roots. The thread is still there: great food prepared with care, technique and the best of ingredients; an innovative experience that consistently surprises and satisfies; and a feeling of being personally connected to Skillet, in all its manifestations. We see this as our mission - to continue to deliver on these themes and to continue to find new channels though which we can expand the brand and the family of loyal Skillet customers.
