Description

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 percent as opposed to 30-40 percent 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.

This is 100 percent natural product containing no gluten, lactose, preservatives, antioxidants, additives or dyes.
