I'd like regular ancestral cooking emails!
Lard and bread. They are so good together!
Here’s my recipe for Pane con Ciccioli a.k.a. lard crackling bread. It’s inspired by the litany of bread recipes that see the left over crunchy bits from lard-rendering cushioned in soft carby pillows.
Because I’m a sourdough girl, I make mine with wild yeast and because I adore spelt, that’s what I’ve used here. I thought I’d have a bit of fun by making a rolled up, strudel-style loaf and added some garlic and rosemary for an additional pep.
You can find a link to the recipe in my profile.
I know Italians have been combining lard and bread for a looong time and I’ve recently learnt about a crackling bread sold by street vendors in Argentina. I get access to so many cultures here on IG, anyone else got a lard crackling bread they want to share with me? :-)
