Italian Style Guanciale, made in the USA - Plain or Rosemary & herbs

As seen on Stanley Tucci's Searching for Italy & Giada & Bobby Flay in Italy

Guanciale (pronounced gwan-cha-leh) is a triangular cured meat from a pig’s jowl, with one or two cross veins of lean meat. It is different from pancetta, which comes from the pig’s belly. Guanciale is aged at least 3 months after being lightly rubbed with salt and covered with ground black pepper.

Italian Tradition

The consistency of the meat, the intensity of the aroma and flavor, and the high quality of the tasty fat part are unmistakable features that have always made this the preferred ingredient in traditional regional dishes – especially dishes made Amatriciana-style. Guanciale is also an ingredient in pasta alla gricia and pasta alla carbonara, two cult favorites in the Lazio tradition.
How To Keep It Fresh

Guanciale must always be kept in a cool, dry place, and it should be consumed within a fairly short period of time. Once cut, it retains its goodness for one month at the most, so it is necessary to protect the part exposed to the air with a cheesecloth and leave it in the refrigerator, or even better, in a well ventilated cellar.
NEW SIZE - Hand cut- each piece approx 1 lb plus wedge



Guanciale is an Italian cured meat product prepared from pork jowl or cheeks. Its name is derived from guancia, the Italian word for 'cheek'. Wikipedia

Reviewer: KFS from CT  
I've now enjoyed several of Fortuna's cured meats and sausages -- all have been excellent. This past order was the first I made online, and they delivered it quickly and packed well.
