This feature story was published in the weekly food issue of the G section on May 3, 2012. I interviewed the organizer of Eat Boston, an event company that plans foodie events for charity. I attended his biggest fundraiser of the year, the annual Bacon and Beer Festival. I also took photos for a gallery I created for Boston.com and wrote a preview post for the Go To It events blog before tickets went on sale.
Boston Bacon and Beer Festival raises $20,000 for hunger relief
Morsels of chocolate-coated bacon, mini cups of maple and bacon-infused beer, bacon cotton candy, and smoked cod and lobster chowder with bacon lardon were just some of the samples. About 1,400 people were drawn to this tasting at the House of Blues last Saturday.
