Why this brand


The secret to making delicious cured meat travelled far many years ago with Vintangelo. When he migrated to Australia in the 1960s, he brought with him centuries-old recipes, unique to Southern Italy and the art of traditional food making. A legacy well transferred and not misplaced in his descendant’s hands who still run the family business Puopolo, in Victoria.

How to use it

Before cutting it into slices or cubes cut and discard the brown/orange rim (pork skin) that will be only on one side.

Dry-cured whole pork belly, infused with classic herbs and spices and aged for 40 days. Pancetta means ”little belly” and is used to create the world-famous Amatriciana and Carbonara when Guanciale is not available. It’s also added in Ragu’ Alla Bolognese sauce to give a smoky meat flavour to the sauce. A mamma’s trick is to keep in the freezer strips of pancetta to have them always available for quick last-minute pasta sauces.
