Tasting Notes from the Curator

This delectable, robustly flavored meat is seasoned on the surface with salt, pepper, sage, rosemary and garlic. It is then dried and aged for at least 3 months, a fundamental process which concentrates the flavors. Guanciale has a flavor that is less salty but stronger and fattier than its cousin pancetta—Italian salt-cured pork belly—and a texture that’s somewhat softer and more delicate, which works great when adding to pastas. It is traditionally unsmoked.

Preparation

Guanciale, an Italian cured pork jowl, is an essential ingredient in cooking many Roman pasta dishes, most especially authentic Spaghetti alla carbonara and Bucatini all’amatriciana. It can also be rendered and sauteed with vegetables or cooked with fish or other meat where the fragrant fat of guanciale can infuse perfectly with the dish. It can also be eaten directly in small portions.

Specialty of Italy

Guanciale, for the most part of Italy, is usually homemade with seasonings changing based on an Italian region’s tradition or curing habits. This particular guanciale is specifically made with expertise by Clai. They have held the passion for producing and curing quality meat for many years and has been widely respected in the industry up to this day.
