Boccalone Set to Clean Up with Lard Soap

Posted By on Tue, May 19, 2009 at 3:45 PM

Soon, enthusiasts of Boccalone (One Ferry Building at The Embarcadero) will have something more appropriate to rub all over their bodies than the salumeria's still-new and delectable Nduja (a Calabrian spreadable salame with addictive spice and meatiness). Owned by Incanto's Mark Pastore and Chris Cosentino (the latter set to co-star in the upcoming Food Network series Chef vs. City), Boccalone trumpets a motto of "tasty salted pig parts," and will soon debut a lard soap. That's right: lard. The pig fat is said to produce a rich, creamy, and long-lasting lather, and is a good moisturizer. It's sure to be loved and controversial at the same time. Boccalone executive VP Tatiana Graf told SFoodie the soap should be available in about three weeks.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
