Pancetta Tesa (200g)

Sliced or whole: Sliced
Sale price£9.00

Pancetta is made from pork belly - the same cut used to make streaky bacon. It's a staple of Italian cooking; a relativelely simple, "rustic" cured meat that be used in a wide variety of dishes. Ours is made in San Miniato, Tuscany, by Sergio Falaschi, using pork from locally reared free-range Suino Grigio pigs.

The pork belly is covered with a layer of crushed black pepper and garlic and cured for up to four months - relatively long compared to other pancetta - which results in a stronger flavour and tighter texture.

"Tesa" refers to the fact that the Pancetta is flat, as opposed to the alternative rolled or "Arrotolata" - which we occasionally stock.
