Makin' Bacon
I thought the whole bacon thing was pretty much over. But apparently not at Rodizio Grill (600 S. 700 East, Trolley Square, 801-220-0500, RodizioGrill.com), where by popular demand, the restaurant is extending its popular Bacon Fest through the end of February. In addition to regular Rodizio favorites, bacon-inspired dishes such as Bacon Lover's Cheese Bread, Golden Bacon Salad, Bacon'd Potatoes, Bacon-Wrapped Applewood Ham, Grilled Peppered Pork Belly and other bacon dishes are available to customers at no additional charge.

New Year at J. Wong's
J. Wong's Thai & Chinese Bistro (163 W. 200 South, 801-350-0888, JWongUtah.com) welcomes the Chinese New Year (Feb. 8, 2016)—the Year of the Monkey—with a Lion Dance, performed at the restaurant by Sil Lum Kung Fu Kwoon on Feb. 19-20, beginning at 6:30 p.m. each evening. In conjunction with the Chinese New Year, J. Wong's will offer three special dishes, available by 24-hour advance order only: whole red snapper in Chinese garlic sauce, slow-roasted pork and longevity lo mein. J. Wong's recommends making advance reservations for its Chinese New Year celebration and suggests that guests plan to arrive by 6 p.m., if possible, so as not to miss the colorful and entertaining dance.

Spreading the Amour
Salt Lake City-based Amour Spreads (1329 S. 500 East, 888-554-6845, AmourSpreads.com) kicked off the new year by celebrating a very prestigious award: Its Black Currant Blackberry Jam was the Gold Medal winner in the very competitive Preserves division of the Good Food Awards 2016 in San Francisco. "We'd like to take a moment to thank Jarrod Weeks and his brothers of Weeks Berries for their hard work, sustainable growing practices and for growing the delicious berries and currants in this jam," says Amour Spreads owners John and Casee Francis, regarding their award. But wait, there's more! John and Casee also recently won approval for construction of a cafe as part of the remodel/expansion of their current location, which includes a retail space. Stay tuned here for updates.

Quote of the week: I unfortunately still crave Chicken McNuggets and bacon, which is the meat candy of the world.
