Lard Bread


Not the most appetizing name for baked goods, enough to offend low-carb and low-fat dieters alike, but I salivate like a Pavlov dog when I hear those words. Luckily for my waistline, I can only get this belly bomb at Caputo’s in Carroll Gardens during the day, which occurs rare to never, making it more of a special treat. I assume it’s the lard that makes this the wonder bread that it is – crisp, flaky crust and a fluffy yet creamy interior which suspends bits of salami and cheese and black pepper – I could eat the whole thing in one sitting. That sitting would take a few hours as every bite is to be savored and enjoyed.
