Matt Mine delivers his bacon brittle to Bourdain

For the chef at a seafood restaurant -- Oceanaire -- Matt Mine sure loves his bacon. He often features a slab of it on Oceanaire's menu, and he recently cooked up a batch of bacon brittle with Anthony Bourdain in mind, which was included in the pre-talk meal that Oceanaire and a few other restaurants sent to Bourdain's hotel room yesterday.

Although Mine had to work through Bourdain's talk at the Buell last night, he managed to run across the street to meet the cook/author. Here's Mine's Facebook account of the encounter:

"After giving up my tickets, I still was able to get backstage, shake his hand and find out what he thought of the spicy bacon-cashew brittle I made for him.....His comment? 'Whoooaaa..thanks for all your kitchen did tonight!'
