Lard Bread/Prosciutto Bread

Anyone know if there are Italian bakeries in Boston that make lard/proscuitto bread? I picked some up the last time I was in Brooklyn and it was pretty awesome. I would love to get some closer to home.

  1. They have Proscuitto bread at Bricco's bakery in the North End. Not sure about whether or not they use lard.

      Thanks for the lead. I'll check them out.

      So far as I can tell, in New York at least, "lard bread" and "prosciutto bread" refer to the same thing. Maybe the terminology is different here.

        oh boy you remind me of my days in New Haven - broccoli bread, chicherone bread, spinach and sun dried tomato bread ....the Italian bakeries on Dixwell Avenue. wonder if they still do all that good stuff?

          It's my favorite thing that Bricco the bakery makes. It has Parmesan in it along with diced prosciutto. Definitely worth checking out!
