Salty sweet pork bliss
Remember those Vosges Haut Chocolat bars made from premium chocolate seasoned with bacon? Well, there’s a trend in cooking of adding or serving bacon with rich and sweet desserts. Dovetails in New York City, for example, serves a fancy bread pudding with 1 whole cup of rendered bacon flavor infused into its sauce. They’re using real bacon and forgetting the packaged bacon bits. Meanwhile, NPR recently featured an article with recipes for peanut-butter-maple bacon fudge and maple-apple-bacon cake with maple glaze. We suggest simply crumbling crispy cooked bacon over that rich piece or serving of your favorite decadent desert, such as set mousse or dark chocolate cake.
