Soon, enthusiasts of Boccalone (One Ferry Building at The Embarcadero) will have something more appropriate to rub all over their bodies than the salumeria's still-new and delectable Nduja (a Calabrian spreadable salame with addictive spice and meatiness). Owned by Incanto's Mark Pastore and Chris Cosentino (the latter set to co-star in the upcoming Food Network series Chef vs. City), Boccalone trumpets a motto of "tasty salted pig parts," and will soon debut a lard soap. That's right: lard. The pig fat is said to produce a rich, creamy, and long-lasting lather, and is a good moisturizer. It's sure to be loved and controversial at the same time. Boccalone executive VP Tatiana Graf told SFoodie the soap should be available in about three weeks.

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
