Housemade Guanciale, Piece
Guanciale is a rarity in the U.S., and great guanciale like ours is a true find. We cure naturally raised pig jowl (the Italian guancia means cheek) from a local farm with a mix of salt, herbs, and spices, then hang the jowls until they reach the desired texture.
You can use guanciale in place of pancetta for many recipes, and it is the traditional ingredient for Bucatini all'Amatriciana and Spaghetti alla Carbonara. We sell this item as a single piece so that you can cut to your desired shape or thickness.

The Formaggio Kitchen family of stores began in 1978 with a vision of creating a European shopping experience in Cambridge. Today, owners Ihsan and Valerie Gurdal operate four stores: Formaggio Kitchen Cambridge, Formaggio Kitchen Kendall, Formaggio Kitchen South End and Formaggio Kitchen Essex Market.
We travel throughout the US and Europe visiting dairies, cheesemakers and agers of artisan cheese whose products we bring to our stores so that our customers can experience the wonders of these artisan producers. We produce many of our own products in our kitchen and bakery - all from scratch and using time-tested traditional recipes with the best ingredients available. We are particularly proud of our charcuterie program, which has won numerous Good Food Awards, our catering department which makes our much-loved Pimento Cheese and Spiced Pita Chips and our bakery and their housemade granola, cornmeal biscotti and teacakes.
