Monterey, CA, October 9, 2017 — The country’s finest bacon, Baker’s Bacon all-natural uncured back bacon, will now be available to the public nationally for the first time and sold through Allen Brothers, the country’s top purveyor of prime steaks and premium meats.
Baker’s Bacon, created in 2011 by renowned chef Tony Baker of Monterey’s Montrio Bistro, will be featured in the Allen Brothers’ Fall/Holiday catalog as well as on its website, https://www.allenbrothers.com/bakers-back-bacon.html and https://www.allenbrothers.com/bakers-peppered-bacon.html.
“We are very excited to be working with what has long time been recognized as one of the country's top beef houses,” said Baker. “We get so many requests from the public to be able to purchase our bacon, which up until now has only been available to the foodservice industry, I couldn’t think of a better partner to help us make this a reality.”
Far beyond the quality you'll find at your local butcher shop, Allen Brothers' luxurious USDA Prime and Wagyu steaks — once reserved exclusively for some of the nation's top steakhouses including Hall's Chophouse, Nick & Sam’s, David Burke’s Prime House, Bourbon Steak & Gallagher's Steakhouse — are available to discerning home chefs and grillers nationwide. Named one of the best online butchers in America by Town & Country and Forbes Magazines, Allen Brothers is still located near the historic Union Stock Yard on Chicago's South Side, where its artisan butchers have expertly hand-cut prime steaks since 1893.
In addition to prime steaks, Allen Brothers also sells pork, lamb, veal, game, poultry and seafood.
Baker’s Bacon is also distributed wholesale to restaurants in San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Chicago, Miami and New York City, and is proudly featured on menus of some of the top chefs in the country.
Chef Tony Baker of Montrio Bistro in Monterey, California, created this style of bacon for his restaurant, now it's available to you. “It takes me back to my English roots. It really doesn't get any better than this!”
About Baker’s Bacon
Unable to find a naturally dry-cured back bacon anywhere in the states, Chef Tony Baker decided it was time to bring a taste of the UK across the pond. As a professional chef and restaurateur for over 20 years, Tony desires the finest of ingredients in every dish he prepares. Missing from the list was back bacon, made using only the best ingredients from the swine on up. Out of that desire for quality and freshness came Baker’s latest product, English-Style “Uncured” Back Bacon.
Baker’s Bacon was founded with the help of partner Steve Sacks of Prime Smoked Meats in Oakland, California, starting with a long, slow, dry cure, followed by a long and low smoke in a 60-plus-year-old smoke house. Baker’s Bacon has a culture of sustainability with all of its business practices starting with its commitment to humane, crate free, antibiotic free pork from US family farms, even the marketing materials and reusable sampling containers.
