A very pleasant discovery

This Guanciale is a cut of meat from the throat of the pig. We salt and season the meat with aromatic herbs and spices, before leaving it to mature for about three months.
The result is a deli meat with a characteristically dense consistency, making it perfect for consumption on its own or as an ingredient in cooking.
A classic ingredient for two of the most typical and best-loved dishes in the Italian tradition: amatriciana and carbonara pasta. Also try it on hot toast with truffle, or with fried polenta.

Chef’s Tips

A traditional delicacy to be enjoyed uncooked, sliced finely. Excellent with fried polenta, hot focaccia or homemade bread, and as an extra-special ingredient for deliciously flavoursome recipes; perfect for Mediterranean-style sauces.
