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.
