Porky Perfection: Lard Caramels from Chris Cosentino and Humphry Slocombe's Jake Godby
What do you get when you replace butter with lard in a caramel? Humphry Slocombe Boccolone lard caramels, an unlikely marriage of pork byproduct and candy, offering melty, meaty sweetness that blows the mind. So decadent, Chris Cosentino recommends you enjoy them in private, “so not everyone sees your ‘Oh’ face.” We’d have to agree.
Cosentino, salted pig-part maestro at San Francisco restaurant Boccolone Salumeria, teamed up with Jake Godby, founder of the Bay Area Humphry Slocombe ice cream shop, which features mad-science flavors that blur conventions of sweet and salty, to create the candies. The caramels are sold at both establishments, four pieces for $3.50. Also in Godby’s arsenal at Humphry Slocombe? Smokey Bacon Peanut Brittle.
