We told you there was going to be mammoth pork action in Williamsburg this weekend, courtesy of the Iron Chef-esque Bacon Takedown cook-off at Radegast Hall and Biergarten. It didn't disappoint, as you'd expect from an evening spent sampling 30-odd dishes based on the most delicious thing ever.

From the pork cracklins (deep-fried while u wait!) with avocado crema, to home-cured fennel maple bacon, to bacon sloppy joes, to bite-sized bacon cupcakes from the Kumquat Cupcakery (pictured here), there was more than enough salty fatty goodness to go around. The winner? Bourbon bacon ice cream. Food bloggers Blondie & Brownie managed to take copious snaps of the proceedings with one hand while shoving as much bacon into their faces with the other -- check out the gallery here.
