    French Tart's Note:

    A fabulous combination of heat and sweet makes this chilli and chocolate glazed pork a real winner. And, this Sophie Grigson recipe uses a very cheap cut of pork, so it makes a very economical meal; however, the unusual and exciting flavours would make this a great dinner party dish. Serve with assorted stir-fried vegetables, relishes and sauteed potatoes. The Aztec's were famous for using chocolate in their cooking, both savoury and sweet - and the addition of a good quality chocolate adds a deep and delicious dimension to this humble cut of belly pork.
