Bundarra Berkshires

Friday January 11, 2013

Pork seems to be undergoing a bit of a renaissance. Not that it ever really went anywhere, mind, but you get the feeling that we may be at peak-pork-fetishisation right now. You can, after all, buy a bacon-themed coffin.

Thirsty Thursday: New Year's Edition
