Organic Free Range Guanciale (Pork Cheek)

Organic Free Range Guanciale (Pork Cheek)

Weight: 250g (approx.)

We are excited to introduce you to our new range of very special organic, free range cured meats! Our artisan products are hand made with meat from black pigs ethically reared in the wild in Calabria, southern Italy.

Calabrian black pork is renowned in Italy because it contains higher levels of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids of the omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 series. The presence of healthy fats (68% as opposed to 30-40% in other types of salami), means that Calabrian Black cold cuts are much better for cholesterol levels than normal salami and said to be as good for you as tuna or salmon!

Guanciale is cured pork cheek or jowl. It's traditionally cooked and used in classic Roman pasta dishes, like spaghetti all carbonara and bucatini all'amatriciana. Because it's largely fat, guanciale has a more seductive pork flavour and delicate texture than cured meat that comes from the belly (like pancetta, which is a common substitute, although the flavour isn't the same).

Guanciale is traditionally cut into small pieces and melted it down in a saucepan with no additional oil. The fat is used to fry further ingredients which become infused with the incredible aroma and taste. You only need a small amount of Guanciale to make a big impact on your dish. Why not take a look at our blog for a selection of recipes which need guanciale?

Awful service. Left it a week to send me a three-word message "out of stock". No attempt to explain nor apologise and left me no time to find an alternative before xmas. Truly shocking.

Lovely soft, slightly sweet, fruity panettone. I am amazed that it is possible to make a vegan one. I made it into a vegan bread and butter style pudding and it worked really well, you really couldn't tell the difference between this and a non vegan one. I am impressed and will be buying another next year. I just wish they were sold year round!

I treated myself to this for Christmas Day. It was delicious. Lots of fruit and wonderful texture. I'll definitely buy it again.
