La Quercia Guanciale is a cured pork bacon made from the fatty and tender tissues of the jowl or cheek. Named for the Italian word for cheek 'guancia', this Italian favorite is dry cured in salt, pepper and spices for a minimum of 6 weeks, which gives it a stronger flavor than pancetta. When cooked into traditional Italian sauces, the fat is rendered away and the sauces are infused with rich deep flavors that take them to the next level. Now you can experience this at home and experience what Italian cooks have kept secret for centuries!
