Adventures in Pancetta

I’ve been thinking about pancetta since the weekend when we saw it at Nosh Food Market. I really wanted to try pancetta so went to Sabato in my lunch break today and bought some. I love gourmet food stores. I got to taste lots of stuffed olives, porcini cream, salami and cheese. Heaven! They even do free coffee there but I didn’t have time for a coffee today.

Sliced the pancetta up and fried it with calamari, cauliflower, garlic and dropped it onto some fettucini.

Did some reading and pancetta is like bacon minus the smoking. At over $70 per kg, it sure would be sweet to try making some pancetta. Especially since pork belly is so cheap!

Still got a small half of the pancetta left. I’m thinking that it will go great in some onion/garlic stuffing shoved inside some poultry.
