Have you ever been to the Ferry Building in San Francisco? If so - and you're not a vegetarian - you might have seen Boccalone. Their tag line is 'tasty salted pig parts.' No joke. So, if you don't eat pork, look away. Now.
But if tasty salted pig parts float your boat, read on.
They have a glass case that basically screams: look at me. Hanging salumi...I wanted every since piece! Every. Single. Piece. I'm not kidding.
But I restrained myself and ended up with sanguinaccio...
...Orange & Wild Fennel Salame that we sliced up on a post-Christmas cheese platter...
...and, lastly, guanciale - salt-cured pork jowl - that I used in my Strozzapretti alla Carbonara.
I'm in love. Now I just need to figure out if they ship! Or I need to create an excuse to get back up to the City.
