English Bacon

I have just returned from my local butcher - although local is stretching it at 12km away (as the closer one closed last month).

Anyway I spoke with him about "English" bacon. He didn't know what it was, so I showed him pictures and asked whether he could make some. SURE was his response.

It will be about 35chf per kilo - and will be salted, smoked and without bones (unlike the bacon steaks that he already does).

I didn't want him to go to all the trouble of doing one just for me, nor do I want to spend the rest of the year only eating bacon, so I wanted to gauge forum interest.

Butcher: Erich Bleicher, Usterstrasse 11, 8617 Monchaltorf.

Would people put the effort in to go to Monchaltorf if I get him to make one?
