FAYETTEVILLE, AR -- The first food competition featuring bacon in Arkansas had fans of the flavorful food flocking to the Northwest Arkansas Mall.

Competitors in the 2013 Bacon Bowl tested their culinary skills in creating the best bacon dishes either in the entree or dessert division. Arkansas' own Petit Jean meats donated bacon to all who competed and the teams were divided by amateurs and professionals, with the winners receiving cash and prizes.

"There are competitions around the country and home of the Razorbacks, so it kind of makes sense to celebrate pork in Fayetteville," said John McClure, Bacon Bowl Festival Director.

Local celebrities and food critics determined the winners with the overall best dish champion winning a trip to New Orleans to represent Northwest Arkansas at the 6th Annual New Orleans Food Festival.
