Lard Bread is gods creation to earth, at least for me. What can be better than bread with tasty chunks of salted Italian meat? Mazzola Bakery in Carroll Gardens, is an old school Italian Bakery that’s in been business for over 80 years. You can buy some of the best Italian bread, pastries and even get a decent latte here, but the focal point of this post is about buying their Lard Bread, hot and fresh out of the oven. An acquaintance who lives across the street told me the secret is to knock on their back door sometime in the late evening, and if your timing is right, you’ll be rewarded with freshly baked Lard Bread! I got lucky the other night, and it was worth bearing the cold and waiting for the unreliable F train. The photo speaks for itself!
