Boccalone's Incanto Pork Ragu
(Read What & Why I am Doing This Here)
The Boccalone Mission: "Boccalone artisan salumi combine high quality pork, Italian sea salt, and the freshest spices with the rarest of all ingredients: time. We start with sustainably-raised, heritage-breed pork. We combine old-world recipes and traditional methods with modern technology... Our small-batches, hands-on methods and traditional cold curing techniques can take up to ten times longer than other producers’.Eat Local? I was told by the member of Boccalone staff whom I asked the question of, that as well as being locally made (over the Bay in Oakland), 90% of their ingredients are locally sourced too.
