Zingerman's Mo Frechette on his bacon and chocolate dreams
According to the New Yorker story, Frechette had a dream about chocolate and bacon several years ago. He shared his dream with his friend Katrina Markoff, a confectioner at the high-end Vosges chocolate maker, who went on to produce a whole line of chocolate and bacon products for the company, named after Mo Frechette.
Mo's latest dream? A marriage between pickles and chocolate.

I love bacon and chocolate (bacon and maple candy is good too) pickle popsicles are really good. Can't wait to see what comes of the pickle chocolate combo finally, I am really sick of reading about the same places on this website, Jessica you have written too many pieces on a limited number of places (obviously your favorites) venture out and write something on other places that are not (the former) Eve, Frita Banditos or anything Zingermans. I have never once seen a paid ad on this site for any of those places, mainly because so many "articles" are written about them. Article being arbitrary, this was a two paragraph blur that included a link.

bunnyabbot - Mmmm. Bacon and maple candy. Sounds wonderful - I will have to try it. As for what I write about, it's usually recipes and the occasional aggregation of a national story relating to Ann Arbor. It's true that most of the national news centers around Zingerman's , and Eve Aronoff has a national reputation as well, thanks to her Top Chef appearances. My most recent local restaurant-related post was this 2011 roundup: <a href="http://www.annarbor.com/entertainment/food-drink/2011-a-look-back-at-the-year-in-food-news/">http://www.annarbor.com/entertainment/food-drink/2011-a-look-back-at-the-year-in-food-news/</a> Some of my other favorites are in there, including eat, Biercamp, Seoul Street, Mani and a few more. Check it out!
