Outsourcing trend: meat on the bones

Inside Scoop reports that Incanto's owner and chef bought a sausage factory in Oakland they plan to use to launch a line of their own cured meats.

This extends the outsourcing trend I wrote about here previously, with Paul Bertoli also selling cured meats and Palio d'Asti trying to sell its pastries to other restaurants.

In addition to Incanto, Bertoli and Palio, Beach Chalet is getting into the game. I reported earlier this month (subscriber-only link until the new year) that Lara and Gar Truppelli are considering spinning off their own microbrewery.
