The Sticky Pig Featured On Food Network This Friday!

When we featured Tara Simon's business, The Sticky Pig, on Food Profiling last month, she was dying to squeal an announcement.

"I'm working on something BIG, but I can't tell you just yet," she told us, graciously waving off our pleas for more deets--something to do with disclaimers and liability, or whatnot. Jump to last night, where her V.I.P.s (Very Important Pigs, naturally) received a special email exclaiming the champagne-worthy news.

"I'm excited to announce the television debut of The Sticky Pig, this Friday, May 13th, at 10 p.m., on Food Network's Outrageous Food with host Tom Pizzica."

Outrageous Food, which debuted less than a month ago, follows the season six finialist from The Next Food Network Star on his adventures in discovering food that is so non-conformist, it's its own kind of crazy. Corn-on-the-cob flavored ice cream, for example. Pause to shudder at the thought.

The Bacon Vixen spent two days with "Big Chef", makin' bacon for the camera. If you need a second reason to tune in, she'll be debuting her newest creation on the show! That should make for some savory television on an otherwise freaky Friday.

Check out Tara's close-up this Friday night, on the appropriately titled episode "Bacon Candy," or catch the re-airing on Sunday, May 22nd, at 6:30 p.m. Congrats, Sticky Pig!
