Guanciale is produced using whole pork cheeks that are rubbed with salt, spices, and sugar, and cured for at least three weeks. Our Guanciale offers rich, porky, umami flavor that is far bolder than other pork products. Its dense and silky texture crisps up when cooked, and the melted fat creates a fantastically rich and unique flavor to any dish it is used in.
A specialty cured meat of central Italy, guanciale's name is derived from guancia, the Italian word for 'cheek'.
Use guanciale to make delicious Roman dishes at home like Pasta all'Amatriciana, Carbonara, or Gricia (a variation of Cacio e Pepe with the addition of guanciale).
