Guanciale is an Italian-style bacon made from the meat of pork jowls — it is a sought-after delicacy in Italy. Made from pasture-raised, antibiotic-free Heritage Berkshire breed pork, this guanciale is hand-coated with fresh cracked pepper, sea salt, garlic, and dry-cured. 

The result is a tasty meat with a noticeably richer flavor than typical bacon. Which explains why guanciale is a favorite with chefs in dishes such as spaghetti alla carbonara and pasta all'amatriciana, and as a flavorful meat seasoning in greens, salads, soups, and chowders.
