Canadian Bacon?

Posted by julien-181799 - Created: 14 years ago

Hi,

I'd like to cook up a nice breakfast complete with Canadian style bacon. Does anyone know where I might find some around Nice?

Any ideas on what cut I should ask for at the butchers here? After looking at this site:

http://www.foodsubs.com/MeatcureBacon.html

I figured the best translation might be 'filet de porc' ?? Is this correct, or will I end up getting lunch/dinner style pork rather than breakfast bacon with this translation?

Thanks,

Julien.

Hi Flumple - thanks for the reply. I think poitrine is more along the lines of streaky bacon though, as it has a lot of fat in it. Found something in the supermarket today though that might do the trick - jambon a griller!

Hi! I have been working "a la coupe" on a charcuterie stall for the last 2 months for want of anything better... Many people come to me asking for bacon - the closest we have to it is called 'poitrine salee' or 'poitrine fumee' if you prefer the smoky flavour...

I hear that some shops do sell proper bacon - I dont know which I'm afraid... it isnt something I've missed!
