Main course


The cubes are fried and used in soffrito (the Italian version of a mirepoix) to give a base flavour to all kinds of dishes or incorporated in pasta dishes such as spaghetti carbonara. It has a delicious sweet-spicy taste. Sliced pancetta can be served as part of a selection of cold meats, or grilled until crisp and then crumbled over pasta, rice, salads and soups. Wrap pieces of fish, chicken or meat in slices of pancetta and oven-bake them, or use it as a pizza topping.
