Swap out some of the butter in a super flaky biscuit recipe for pesto bianco, aka lardo, for absolutely delicious biscuits.
What’s better than flaky biscuits? Not much. Except! Flaky biscuits that seriously melt in your mouth, thanks to lardo. Lardo is cured pork fat and spices. It’s rich, creamy and so delightful.
La Quercia makes a wonderful Pesto Bianco, a savory lardo spread, that is wonderful in biscuits. It had some extra umami and savory notes to the biscuits that you might not know you were missing.
