Heroine and Pork a Perfect Pair


We couldn't let Matt have all the fun!  Want another great pairing with Heroine?  Here is a recipe from Birk's cookbook, Eat Ink.  This recipe comes from Jonathan Power of the Populist in Denver Colorado. His take on Bacon & Eggs is the brunch of champions, especially next to any of our chardonnays.


Bacon & Eggs


  • 1 lb. quality bacon
  • 3 medium yellow onions, diced
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup sherry vinegar
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, as needed
  • 4 eggs
  • Splash of white vinegar
  • 4 slices ciabatta bread
  • 10 very thin slices Lardo (available at many high end delis) [AU: AMOUNT?]
  • Hot smoked paprika, to garnish
  • Thinly sliced scallion, to garnish

 Jonathan Power and his killer roast pig sleeve.

1) Cut bacon into lardons. In a cast-iron skillet, render slowly over medium heat until crisp,,about 10-15 minutes. Remove from pan and drain off all but 2 tablespoons fat.

2) Add yellow onions to skillet and sweat in bacon fat until translucent, about 5-7 minutes.  Add the sugar and a pinch of salt and continue cooking for 10 minutes. Add sherry vinegar and bacon back to pan and continue cooking for roughly 90 minutes, or until liquid has reduced and mixture has caramelized and thickened. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper as needed.

3) When jam is ready, gently poach eggs in simmering water with a splash of white vinegar. Meanwhile, toast ciabatta bread and top with paper-thin slices of lardo. Serve the egg on a bed of the jam with the lardo toast on the side. Add a touch of paprika to the egg and top with a slice or two of scallion. Serve immediately.

Iconic at the Jack Kirby Museum!


We were very pleased to be able to sponsor a few nights as part of the Jack Kirby Museum Pop Up!  For those of you that don't know, Jack Kirby is a comic legended, creating characters like Captain America and Fantastic Four. His style defined Marvel Studios art for nearly a decade. But before his success he grew up in relative pocerty in Manhattan's Lower East Side, where for most of the month of December much of his work was on display.

We also, got to join our friends at Comic Book Club Live at a special recording of the podcast at the pop up!
