Cured meat

Guanciale

Our guanciale is made from pork jowl, dry cured with salt and pepper. With a fuller flavour than pancetta and traditionally high in fat, a little goes a long way. It is traditionally used in pasta dishes such as amatriciana or carbonara, where it imparts a distinctive pork taste.

What's the difference between pancetta and guanciale?

Pancetta is derived from the pork middle and Guanciale is from the pork jowls. Both are a largely fatty and ideal for cooking adding intense rich flavours to dishes.
