3-Star Great Taste Award and Charcuterie Product of the Year 2019
Guanciale (also called Uncle Charlie in the smokehouse) is the cheek of the pig which has been cured, fermented and air-dried in a similar way to pancetta. Guanciale has more fat than pancetta, but as a result has a huge depth of flavour. The fat is transformed by the curing and fermenting process and becomes silky and unctuous. A cooking ingredient it is used in Italy to make the classic dishes; pasta all'amatriciana and spaghetti alla carbonara and can be used as an alternative to pancetta in any recipe. Try it on a home-made pizza with dolcelatte cheese for something really special!
