Pancetta Giovanna - Cooked Bacon 4Kg


Pancetta named Giovanna has the classic yummy taste of cooked bacon and at the same time is very digestible thanks to the unique production method. Two big pork bellies are left under a layer of aromatic salt for two weeks. Then they are sewn and bound together thanks to the wise art of manual work. Pancetta is then steam-cooked for 20 hours, then baked for 2 hours in the oven.

It is suggested to serve la Giovanna thinly sliced, forming a small pyramid, at a temperature between 2°C and 10°C. Enjoy it with home-made bread. Pair with sparkling red wines, such as Gutturnio, or with sparkling whites, such as Prosecco brut.
