Guanciale

There’s no compromise when it comes to authentic ingredients, our Guanciale is rich and aromatic. Whether you’re looking to make the perfect rendition of a roman style carbonara or just want some really delicious pork the fats will melt as this renders down, you can also cut it very thin and place it on top of some warmed crusty bread that’s been rubbed with a little garlic, the fat and meat will start to melt and become harmonious.

If you’ve never had Guanciale before, then you seriously are missing a trick. Delicious, deep flavours that the different parts of pigs have are incredible. It’s a little like chicken breast compared to chicken thigh, a little flavour vs a lot of flavour.

Once this has started to dry out the copious amount of fat that the jowl has means there’s a wealth of flavour. Such a rich, umptoous base for soups, stews and pasta dishes. That winter food feeling of a hearty meal occurs when you smell these deep aromas cooking.

This is another area of knowing what to trim off and what to keep is where we’re able to use all of the pig, by using all of the available meat we are respecting the life of the animal and not discarding parts that are actual very tasty.
