Curiosity Lard was the meal of the poor miners marble of the Apuan Alps, they ate it sliced in very thin slice, with rustic bread and tomato. A food prepared in the early morning and intended to support all day the quarry workers. Lard is the typical product of Colonnata, a small village situated on a spur of the marble quarries around Carrara. The custom of aged lard in white Carrara marble basins dates back to the XI century. The recipe has been passed down from generation and jealously guarded by each manufacturer.
Our selection It is produced in Colonnata according to tradition, as required by the IGP, from small Larderia Il Poggio
Suggestions Traditionally enjoyed very thinly sliced, raw. With some ground pepper, rosemary and drops of olive oil, as an appetizer. Beautiful with gnocchi or as a main dish accompanied by beans and Pecorino cheese. Very nice as ingredient to flavor many recipes especially the traditional Tuscany soups
