Boccalone Salumeria and Acme Bread - A San Francisco Ferry Building Picnic

Boccalone Capocollo on an Acme Bread Baguette

The day after having dinner at Incanto, we were craving some more cured meat from Boccalone. The solution? Head to their storefront in the San Francisco Ferry Building.

It was worth the visit just to peer into their curing refrigerators. Yum!

We decided to get some more of our favorite item from the Incanto antipasto platter - their capocollo. Here is a 4oz portion, freshly sliced up:

Salted pig parts now in hand, we just needed a delivery vehicle. Lucky for us, Acme Bread Company was only a few steps away:

There we purchased what might be the best baguette I've ever tasted. Deliciously crispy on the outside, delicately airy on the inside and perfectly seasoned. Paired with the capocollo it made for the perfect sandwich.

For "dessert", we stopped by the San Francisco Fish Company and snagged a few of their smoked scallops.

They were fantastic - something we definitely need to try making.

  2. Hi Sawyer - glad to hear that beeradvocate is being useful. I could go for some capocollo right now, too - we haven't figured out how to make it yet, though...
