The Improbable Goodness of Incanto's Chocolate-Nduja Ice Cream

  • This is just a taster; you get more meat and chocolate in the actual serving, plus a "waffled" cookie.

Our refrigerator is rarely without nduja, Boccalone's spicy spreadable salame. When preparing a meal, we've often asked ourselves, "Would this dish be better with nduja?" The answer has so far always been a resounding yes, but we never thought of mixing it with chocolate ice cream. Luckily, Chris Cosentino and crew at Incanto did.

Boccalone previously explored the frozen meat dessert category with Humphry Slocombe in a prosciutto blend, but Incanto's chocolate-nduja ice cream is more harmonious, maybe from the chocolate base (72% Guittard) combined with the nduja's heat. Since Boccalone doesn't have freezers, Incanto is the exclusive spot for this meaty frozen delight, served with a "waffled" cookie on select evenings.

Incanto: 1550 Church (at Duncan), 641-4500.

  • 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.'"
