April Bloomfield, James Beard Nominee, and her Devils on Horseback

Devils on Horseback

Newly nominated for another James Beard award–this time for Best NYC Chef—and definitely deserving of it, April Bloomfield’s food just keeps getting better. For example, her widely-publicized recipe for the bar snack called Devils on Horseback, which are served at The Spotted Pig in the West Village nightly, has recently received an upgrade.

New prunes? Uh-uh. Different poaching method for the tender pear tucked inside? Nope. Three words, and like the primary ingredients in the Devils themselves, they are three of my favorites: Double. Smoked. Bacon. From Schaller & Weber. In the tabloids of the meat world, this is cover page news, and it’s actually true.

So, next time you’re looking for a cocktail or date night destination, I recommend you reserve a table at The Spotted Pig, and order those Devils before they ride off into the sunset.
