“Imagine a big Gypsy family sitting around a camp fire. They all hold these sticks in their hands and they're grilling chunks of bacon. It wasn't just the Gypsys who were eating it. Everyone did it. We ate it even at a school camp. It's our version of the American marshmallow on a stick. This kind of bacon can be bought at german ,romanian or hungarian deli .”
