Tasty Salted Pig Parts!

Ever since Boccalone was featured on “The Best Thing I Ever Ate” on the Food Network, Boyfriend has been dying to try it.  Any mention of the city resulted in Boyfriend asking if we could go to the Ferry Building to get a taste of the salumi cones.

Who can resist a place that serves “tasty salted pig parts”?!?

The place was a lot smaller than I expected.  It looked a lot bigger on TV.  Despite the small size of the shop, they had tons of salted pig parts for sale.

Besides your regular salami, prosciutto, etc. you can also get pre-packaged lard.

 All the cones were lined up waiting patiently to be purchased and consumed.

We went with a mixed salumi cone for $3.25.  I believe it had prosciutto, mortadella and salami in it but I could be wrong.

The three meats were all flavored wonderfully and it was a great afternoon snack.  I failed to mention that we had eaten lunch prior to the salumi cone so we had to do a couple laps around the Ferry Building to build up our appetite for it!

The next time we go, I’d love to try the nduja – spreadable Calabrian salami.  How luxurious does that sound?!?  I’d also like to meet Chris Constantino but that is probably less likely.

    I want to put some of that fine looking meat on a baguette and top it off with some parmesan slices.

    Next time, let’s get the custom cone and pick out our choices! It was pretty cool to try several different cuts of meat this way. They also had some free samples of mortadella w/ truffle flakes in it. And this is just one of the many cool shops in the Ferry Building. It was cool just walking around and seeing a lot of the more exotic ingredients you see on the Food Network cooking shows, the stuff you’d normally have to hunt down if you want to use it, actually being sold.
