What is COOKING IN HEELS all about?

COOKING IN HEELS is a comic and practical cookbook blog for the modern Glamazon learning her way around the kitchen.



I went to this delicious restaurant called MARCHE in Los Angeles, and had an appetizer called "Pig Candy" -- granted, not the most appetizing name for a dish, but we tried it. And it was delicious. 

I have altered the dish, replacing the bacon with turkey bacon-- and the integrity was NOT lost.

This recipe is perfect as a little snack to have with some red wine (always a must!), as an appetizer, or along with a cheese plate.


  • Turkey Bacon (I used 5 slices) -- obviously, you can use regular bacon... or veggie bacon?
  • 2 tablespoons of Brown Sugar
  • Dash of Cayenne Pepper
Cut your bacon into bite-size pieces. Spray your pan with some olive oil and add the meat on medium heat, for a nice even cook. 

One the bacon starts getting crispy, sprinkle the brown sugar in the pan, and the dash or two  of cayenne pepper-- be aware: the cayenne pepper is STRONG, so take it easy!

Let the sugar coat the bacon, created an almost jerky-like texture. Remove from the heat, and serve!
