    Bacon ice cream is no longer innovative or shocking, but the Block pulls it off nicely, with bacon playing a role similar to the role salt plays for caramel. (Joe Bonwich)

    You must try The Block's baked mac & cheese! Pure, unadulterated, cheesy ridiculousness served in a skillet. http://bit.ly/1cp9WrR
