Authentic Italian Guanciale is a specialty from the Umbria and Lazio regions, characterized by its tenderness and very special flavor. It is made from first choice pork jowl, then salted, flavored, and slow-cured for approximately 3 months. It is frequently used as an ingredient for famous Italian pasta recipes, like Carbonara and Amatriciana. It is a gourmet substitute to pancetta, and when cut very thin it will just about melt over vegetables for a unique mouth-watering taste.
