Meet The Chef
Camilo Velasquez was a founding member of Eat Lino, an underground supper club in Brooklyn, NY, feeding neighborhood folks 5-7 course meals complete with wine pairings in a shared industrial loft apartment. It was here that he learned to make his own bacon, developing recipes and techniques that would become the foundation of The Baconer.
After relocating to California, Camilo founded The Baconer, selling his absurdly delicious products at farmers markets throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. Fast forward a few years and today The Baconer produces a full line of artisan bacons available nationwide online and to restaurants and grocery stores throughout Northern California. Through his cooking classes, Camilo brings his lifelong passion for food, cooking...and especially bacon...to anyone from kitchen novices looking for a delicious fool-proof menu to experienced home cooks looking to reinvigorate their culinary repertoire.
