Origin

Italians have been enjoying Pancetta for ages.Pancetta is actually unsmoked Italian bacon. This makes it different from American bacon. The history of Pancetta goes back to several centuries. Historical data shows that in the 15th century, sailors stocked cured meat for long voyages. It is available in slabs, cured, and spiced for added taste.

Usually, curing takes 5-7 days, with an additional 14-21 days of hanging the meat in a cool environment to acquire its unique taste. Different versions of Pancetta are available in Italy, depending on the type of pig and seasonings used to cure the pork.

Chefs and foodies love it for its versatility.  Fry the cubes for a couple of minutes, and they are ready. When sautéed with onions or garlic, they make a perfect base for pasta, soup, or risotto. Pasta and Pancetta make the perfect pair.
