Dude! #1... that dish looks excellent!! When do I det my Valentines present? I'm showing this to my husband now... he's screwed. #2... you can NEVER talk too much about home-curing your own guanciale. I'm jealous. I"m still holding on to a small square I picked up in Italy last summer and smuggled home. We made an excellent amatriciana (natch!) with it and I can't get myself to finish it up. I'll prob. cry when it's done. Go you! Amy @ http://www.neverfull.wordpress.com


Thanks for the comment, Amy!

I am impressed that you got guanciale home through customs... I'm always too nervous to try. It seems to be relatively straightforward to cure at home - I'm hoping Husbear has time soon to write up a longer post about the half-pig it came from!

Heh - I'm feeling for your husband!
