Lard Cookies Move Out of the Panaderia and into Humphry Slocombe
Cover your ears, pork haters. Lard's an essential ingredient at Mexican panaderias like La Victoria on 24th St. in the Mission -- it makes for incredibly short, crumbly pastries. As of today, it's come full circle, without ever leaving the neighborhood. Post-mod ice cream shop Humphry Slocombe announced via tweet that it'd baked off a big old batch of shortbread cookies enriched with lard from the salumeria Boccalone. Humphry owner Jake Godby told SFoodie the cookies contain a bit of cornmeal and rosemary, and cost $3.50 for four specimens. Score the crumbly, pork-scented goodness both at Humphry Slocombe (2790 Harrison at 24th St.) and Boccalone (Ferry Building Marketplace #21).
