But 4Fourteen head chef Carla Jones believes a few punters will order it.
“It’s not something I ever thought I’d be doing but it will be
interesting to see how many we’ll sell,” she said. “I reckon some people

The burger is one of a number of dishes being prepared by chefs around Sydney for Bacon Week.
“About two-thirds of bacon sales made in Australia are from pork
that’s imported and the average consumer doesn’t know that’s going on,”
Australian Pork CEO Andrew Spencer said.
