Lardo and Caul fat

Does anyone know where to get either of these delectable items? Thanks.

  1. Lardo, maybe, at Cube/Divine Pasta on La Brea near Melrose. Please keep us informed of your progress. One other place, try Huntington Meats in The Farmers Market, 3rd & Fairfax.

      Cube has lardo from Salumi Salame in Seattle. They call it their "white prosciutto" and it is utterly delicious.

      1. Haven't made it out to Cube yet this week, but I was able to find decent caul fat in the freezer section at Bristol Farms in South Pasadena--they've got tons of it.

        Salumi's overrated but I'll withhold judgment until I try their lardo.

          Got to tell you, Salumi's Lomo is excellent, I like the house salami, the winter, the mole was good but seemed a little dry. I got to tell you, I still love some basic Gallo & Molinari's. There is this one salami at Claro's, salami & prosciutto in one, very nice.
