Lardo - where to buy in Bay Area
Are there any retailers that carry lardo for the home cook? Specifically in the San Francisco Bay Area. Thanks!
Those are the three places I've bought it. Call first to see if they have any on hand.
Fatted Calf is also at the Berkeley and Ferry Plaza farmers markets on Saturdays.

The Pasta Shop in Rockridge in Oakland (and possibly the one on 4th St. in Berkeley) also sells it.
I went into Star Meats in Berkeley about a month ago and they had two kinds (both house-made). I think it was made from the Mangsalita pigs they had in the wintertime. It wasn't in the display case, so you'll have to ask or call ahead.
