Bacon and Chocolate

A salted, sated stupor. That’s the best way I can describe what happened to me and my companions last night at Nutty Steph’s Bacon Thursday.

On Thursday nights from 6 ’til midnight, Jaquelyn Rieke — aka Steph — transforms her chocolate shop into an ersatz cabaret, proffering wine and beer along with bacon from area farms. Order a “flight” of bacon and engage in some serious taste-testing of everyone’s favorite pork product; order dipping sauces like chocolate, caramel, honey and maple for the aforementioned stupor.

Yep, there’s live music. Jaquelyn might even provide some of it, belting forth a bawdy love song with her banjo-playing  boyfriend-accompanist. All her usual chocolate delicacies are for sale too…chocolate balances bacon, dontcha know.

Call 229-2090 for details on Bacon Night hours during the holidays. Or stop by (Tues-Sat, 10-6) to pick up some stocking stuffers for the chocoholics on your list, and ask her yourself.

  1. Sylvia: You make hard work — translating good food and atmosphere — look so easy and appealing. I love getting your pieces about Vermont life and food; I’m think it’s time to move north. Aar, Naan rocks!

    May your holidays be warm and filled with good cheer (and food!), and I sure hope to see you in February–

  2. Dear Sylvia,
    I just stumbled on this. So glad you enjoyed yourself at the cabaret. Patrons play the parts here, dotcha know!
    cheers and chocolate,
