Students join 'swine and dine' fun at brewery's BaconFest
"BaconFest turned out to be an amazing event,” said Bald Birds owner Joe Feerrar. “We were very fortunate to partner with Chef Duffy and the Penn College culinary school. The first-hand butchering and grilling experience that Chef Duffy, Palin and Charlie created for our community was outstanding and was loved by our customers."
Duffy, originally from the Philadelphia area, knows the subject well: He recently sold ArdmoreQ, a restaurant near his hometown that featured “traditional BBQ with a Duffified kick.”
Another venture, Kristopher’s, received widespread critical acclaim, but he is probably better known for his appearances on the television series “Bar Rescue” and as a regular judge on Food Network’s “Beat Bobby Flay.”
For their part, Hurst and Suchanec recently completed a Penn College course in Artisan Butchery & Charcuterie Applications and “had a blast” being mentored by Duffy.
