The Flavor Experience

Unsmoked pork belly, gently cured for a clean, milk pork flavor.

The Story

Often referred to as "Italian bacon", pancetta is Italian salt-cured pork belly. Unlike its American counterpart, pancetta is unsmoked and cured with a mixture of salt and spices, then dry-aged for several months. Add pancetta to your favorite Italian dishes without infusing the smokiness of bacon. Pancetta comes either rolled, which is most common, or flat, which resembles bacon. It can be cubed or sliced thin, depending on the application, and is usually used for fat-rendering.

Usage Tips

In just about every application, you start with rendering the fat and crisping the meat. From there, you can make superb carbonara, saute some vegetables, or top a burger. Can you name something that pork fat doesn't make better?

Straight From the Monger’s Mouth

"Should you ever tire of bacon, or if you just want something bacon-esque but not smoky, give Pancetta a shot." — Hunter F., CCP & Overall Cultured Chap
