And now, something more on diced unsmoked Pancetta Cubettata Dolce Bio from Salumificio Pedrazzoli’s Linea Primavera organic range:
Up until 1800, pancetta was considered one of man’s main sources of nutritional energy. Historical testimonies on the high nutritional value of pancetta go back as far as the ancient Lombards, when construction workers would be given approx. 5 kg of pancetta at the beginning of the work season. During the Roman Empire, legionnaires could also expect a ration of pancetta or lard every three days.
RECOMMENDED PAIRINGS: Organic Pancetta Cubettata Bio must be cooked before eating. After frying in a pan, it is ideal for adding to sauces and pasta dishes such as Carbonara and Amatriciana, or adding crunch to salads with croutons and pine nuts, or even enhancing savoury pies or omelettes for fun, colourful brunches. We recommend serving it with young, red wines, such as Grignolino d’Asti and Monferrato Casalese from Piedmont.
