Lardo Pestato



Cured, whipped back fat. This is basically the porky butter of the gods. Cured typically with a mix of aromas and salts to both flavour and cure the fat, Aldo adds only three ingredients to his – salt, garlic & rosemary. This translucent white paste is delicious served solo on toast and should be treated as special as caviar would be in our opinion. However, some other servings might be slathered across raw peeled walnuts, melted over a plate of sautéed wild mushrooms and egg yolk or used highly deliciously as a final stir through a finished pan of carbonara.

Aldo Zivieri comes from a family of butchers in Monzuno, 45 minutes up in the beautiful Bologna Apennines where he has 40 hectares of pristine woodland. He makes all his salumi from his free range, rare breed Mora Romagnola pigs, in his own small abattoir.
