A year ago this time, we sat down with Tara Simon, a.k.a. The Bacon Vixen and creator of The Sticky Pig. Her bacon-wrapped confections have lingered in our memory banks ever since. We met up for lunch to catch up and chat about all things yoga, CrossFit and pork. Tara also hinted at another television segment coming very soon.
Well, soon is tomorrow, and her segment is titled “6 Degrees of Bacon.” The crew from The Chew tagged along with chef Jason Roberts to film a savory cooking segment with Tara.
They made “Jane”–a spicy peanut butter and caramelized banana bacon treat, while sharing a bit of flirty rapport (she mentioned getting Roberts to blush on more than one occasion…go Vixen!).
However, her real excitement is when chef has the rest of The Chew cast taste the final product. Simon crushes on (Michael) Symon in a Facebook post by mentioning, “…he has the sexiest voice, am I right?”. Compared to the rest of them, we're gonna agree.
The Chew airs at 1 p.m. EST, 12 p.m. PST/CST on ABC.
