I know i'm late to the game here but I have just discovered this luscious food (cured and herbed pork fat by any other name) and want to both sample more dishes with it and also buy some for home.Seems like it needs to be warm/melty to be at its best . Look like it's popular with a lot of young chefs now.
My CH search brought up: (my trip to Giullia), Journeyman, Tavern Road , and Coppa. Other spots? Has anyone bought it here, Looks like it's a pretty easy thing to make as well. :
Does Capone or Savenors or Formaggio or Barbara Lynch's So. End store or a No. End store sell it (raw/unflavored fatback , or cured ?)
Bob's Italian Foods added lardo in the last year and Formaggio definitely sells it. You might also be able to find a La Quercia version around. I am talking about the cured fatback which would be sliced, not whipped spread although you might be able to get that from something like Formaggio.
Sycamore had a tasty whipped lardo appetizer last week. I spied it for sale at Bees Knees too.
Dave's Fresh Pasta sells lardo. I think it's from La Quercia? They do have other stuff from there. Not 100% sure. But I am completely sure that they sell it.
