Guanciale di Maiale Stagionato - Aged Pork Cheek Lard Lombardi (Avg. 1.75kg)
  • Description

GLUTEN FREE
NO added monosodium glutamate 

The cheek lard is made, as the name suggests, from the pig's cheek provided with rind; it is a very valuable fatty part and appreciated. 
It is then subsequently salted and peppered, flavoured with herbs such as rosemary and sage, and then be placed in maturing for 30-40 days. 
The result is a very nutritious and tasty cured meat, tinged with muscle strips depending on the animal. 
It is a key ingredient of Italian cuisine, without which wonderful dishes such as carbonara and amatriciana would not taste the same. 
Furthermore, the cheek lard is used as a condiment for the vegetables or soups, as well as a base for many types of sauce.
