Simple and understated but with a bit of a twist, Macon Bistro & Larder’s deviled eggs are like a black dress with a stunning choker. Pureed with the traditional mayonnaise and sweet pickle, the egg yolks are piped into a gentle swirl and topped with a necklace of red bell pepper marmalade, tiny bacon bits and a drizzle of homemade hickory-smoked olive oil. Lovely.
