Candles are a sure-fire solution to a chilly apartment. They're also a delectable complement to a home-cooked meal. Pour them over a spinach salad or a pomme soufflé, and warm up your room and your belly.

At least that's what the regulars at David Burke's Primehouse at The James Hotel Chicago are doing.

You can thank Primehouse's adventurous chef, Rick Gresh, for the unusual use of home décor. Last summer, he debuted the bacon candle and recently, he cooked up a vinaigrette candle version--made from rendered bacon fat, red wine vinaigrette jelly and herbs--to satisfy our appetites for novel comfort food.
