Guanciale - Italian cured pork jowl | ūü¶ÜThe Bow Tie Duck Manila

Guanciale Stagionato Slab

Delicate Cured and Matured Pork Cheek

Guan¬≠ciale is a favorite of Ital¬≠ians as its fat lends a mar¬≠velous meat fla¬≠vor to any meal, espe¬≠cial¬≠ly pas¬≠ta dishes. 

Tast­ing Notes from the Curator

This delec¬≠table, robust¬≠ly fla¬≠vored meat is sea¬≠soned on the sur¬≠face with salt, pep¬≠per, sage, rose¬≠mary and gar¬≠lic. It is then dried and aged for at least 6 months, a fun¬≠da¬≠men¬≠tal process which con¬≠cen¬≠trates the fla¬≠vors. Guan¬≠ciale Sta¬≠gion¬≠a¬≠ta has a fla¬≠vor that is less salty but stronger and fat¬≠ti¬≠er than its cousin pancetta‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČItal¬≠ian salt-cured pork bel¬≠ly‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČand a tex¬≠ture that‚Äôs some¬≠what soft¬≠er and more del¬≠i¬≠cate, which works great when adding to pas¬≠tas. It is tra¬≠di¬≠tion¬≠al¬≠ly unsmoked. 


Guan¬≠ciale Sta¬≠gion¬≠a¬≠to, an Ital¬≠ian cured pork jowl, is an essen¬≠tial ingre¬≠di¬≠ent in cook¬≠ing many Roman pas¬≠ta dish¬≠es, most espe¬≠cial¬≠ly authen¬≠tic Spaghet¬≠ti alla car¬≠bonara and Buca¬≠ti¬≠ni all‚Äôamatriciana. It can also be ren¬≠dered and sauteed with veg¬≠eta¬≠bles or cooked with fish or oth¬≠er meat where the fra¬≠grant fat of guan¬≠ciale can infuse per¬≠fect¬≠ly with the dish. It can also be eat¬≠en direct¬≠ly in small portions. 

Spe¬≠cial¬≠ty of Italy

Guan¬≠ciale, for the most part of Italy, is usu¬≠al¬≠ly home¬≠made with sea¬≠son¬≠ings chang¬≠ing based on an Ital¬≠ian region‚Äôs tra¬≠di¬≠tion or cur¬≠ing habits. This par¬≠tic¬≠u¬≠lar guan¬≠ciale is specif¬≠i¬≠cal¬≠ly made with exper¬≠tise by Clai. They have held the pas¬≠sion for pro¬≠duc¬≠ing and cur¬≠ing qual¬≠i¬≠ty meat for 58 years in the industry.
