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.

Awesome Guanciale! March 15, 2017
Reviewer: Richard Elder from Avon, OH United States  
I have used this in my Bucatini All'amatriciana and my carbonaras.  It is much better than bacon or even pancetta because you can rend it down and have beautiful, deeply browned pieces that are still nice and chewy.  And the flavor is superior also.  Well worth the extra cost (and each recipe only calls for 4 oz., so it goes a long way.
