Pancetta, sourced from above the ribs, embodies a fusion of aromas and spicy flavours derived from carefully selected meats seasoned in accordance with ancient Calabrian tradition. This rectangular-shaped product undergoes a brief brining process before showcasing a distinctive marbling of lean and fat when sliced. Ageing for approximately 30 days further enriches its depth of flavour.

Pancetta is essentially the Italian version of bacon, but generally has a stronger and richer flavour. This means that you can use less of it than you would if you were using ham or bacon in a recipe.

Bacon and pancetta are both pork belly meat (the name comes from the Italian for pork belly ‘pancia‘) but pancetta can be eaten both cooked or uncooked.  Pancetta can be thinly sliced or cubed depending on how you intend to use it and it is a very versatile ingredient to cook with. There are different many ways to incorporate either pancetta or bacon into your cooking.

  • Use cooked and cubed pancetta to make an authentic Carbonara or Amatriciana pasta sauce
  • Wrap slices of pancetta or bacon around meat, seafood, or vegetables before cooking for added flavour and crunch
  • Use as a pizza topping
  • Add to omelettes or Macaroni Cheese
  • Slice paper thin and enjoy in a sandwich
