Bacon Cove, Newfoundland and Labrador

Unfortunately, this lush, rocky cove off the coast of Central Newfoundland is not made of bacon. Bacon Cove is a fishing and farming settlement that was last recorded with less than 150 citizens. There are few things that are defined as quintessentially Canadian (poutine, plaid, hockey), but bacon is definitely one. Not surprisingly, Canada has an abundance of communities, towns, lakes, and villages dedicated to our love of food, and particularly, meat.
