Cooking with Pancetta | Wednesday’s In the Know
For those of you looking to amp up your cooking game with a simple twist, consider cooking with pancetta! From adorning risotto, topping pizza and salads, to garnishing soup, and even as a finishing addition to mac & cheese that your kids will go crazy for, pancetta may just be what you are looking for!
So, what is pancetta? Pancetta is an Italian bacon made of pork belly. Its salt cured and often consumed raw in Italy. Rendering less fat than its cousin bacon, pancetta is best cubed, cooked till golden brown and served as a finishing touch to everything and anything you would normally use bacon for. Not only does it add a delicate touch of sophistication, its salty flavor profile leaves a lasting impression on your taste buds.
