Description
 
Guanciale comes from the Italian word guancia, meaning cheek. It comes from the hog's jowl, whilst other pork bacon products come from the belly. Guanciale is unsmoked and cured for several weeks with salt, pepper and rosemary. With a stronger flavor than pancetta, it is an essential ingredient in traditional central-Italian dishes like bucatini all'amatriciana and spaghetti alla carbonara.

Close but ... March 20, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Sugar Land, TX United States  
It’s difficult to find guanciale like we’ve had in Italy. This is close but not quite there. As other reviews have noted it is heavily seasoned and it tasted better when we removed some of the seasoning. That said, it’s the best that we’ve found in the US so far.

Reviewer: gel from miami beach, FL United States  
Taste as good but the meet had to be washed before it could be used.  The seasoning and cut was bad.  Still given the availability of Guanciale in the USA this was a great find.
