The Wonderful World of Roni Sue's Chocolates

Located in the old Essex Market on New York's Lower East Side, it's completely out of my way, and a real pain to reach before closing time -- but have amazing chocolate, will travel. I travel for Roni Sue's chocolate. Specifically her decadent combination of pork and chocolate known as "pig candy" -- whole fried bacon strips dipped in dark or milk chocolate. The current issue of Edible Manhattan has a great interview with the princess of pork, and discovers how the 56-year-old mother of two found her sweet spot.
