Our 10 Most Challenging Dishes in NYC

The pig blood chocolate Easter pudding at Villabate Bakery, our most challenging dish.

1. Sanguinaccio -- You all like chocolate pudding, right? Creamy and rich, just imagine the effect if you dump a bunch of dark salty pig blood in it. That's the recipe for sanguinaccio, the Eastertide pudding of southern Italy, and a dish readily available at many of the city's old-guard patisseries, including Villabate Bakery -- though often not marked as such. Just look for the dark bowl of pudding in the refrigerator case just before Good Friday. Good grief! 7001 18th Avenue, Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, 718-331-8430
