Ventrèche, or French pancetta, is pork belly rubbed with salt, pepper, and garlic, then rolled and cured. Our ventrèche is beautifully marbled with firm texture – though not as dense as pancetta. The flavor is rich, salty, and very porky. Since it is not smoked, this is the perfect charcuterie to use in cooking and is a vital ingredient in cassoulet. When cubed or sliced, it brings rich porky flavor and dimension to pasta, soup, eggs, stew, beans, and vegetables.

Cooking Methods: Sauté, Pan-Fry, Braise, Stew

Cooking Tips: Use our ventrèche as you would pancetta. Cut into lardons and sauté then toss into salads, pastas, egg dishes, or casseroles. Use as a base for a braise or slice paper thin to bard a roast. Add a large chunk of whole ventrèche to stock while cooking dried beans, soups, or stews.
