Our Favorite Lard Breads in NYC

A peppery porkiness suffused the air at Serious Eats World Headquarters last week. The aroma curled around the nostrils of the worker bees, drawing them from their seats toward a big table covered with plates. "Oh my God, I love that smell!" said one. Ignoring that we'd just had lunch, we prepared to sample ten of the loaves variously called lard or prosciutto bread from around the city. Here are our recommendations for loaves you should seek out.

Grub Street Teases Us With Eataly News

It's $10.99 a pound at Eataly and just as good eaten plain with a spoon, straight from the plastic container. More
