Pancetta Piacentina DOP derives from the sectioning of the belly of heavy Padani pigs coming only from farms in Emilia Romagna and Lombardy.

The meat has a pleasant and sweet fragrance. The slice is soft on the palate, tending to melt in the mouth thanks to the presence of the fat, which also determines the delicate and remarkably mild characteristic savoury flavour.

Salumificio La Rocca is recognised as one of the most attentive custodians of the Emiliana pork-butchers' tradition for the production of Salumi Piacentini. We have been working with them for years and have visited them many times to learn more about their techniques.

Traditionally pancetta is eaten raw as an entrée, either with other charcuterie products or served with broad beans or pecorino cheese.
It is also excellent cooked and is used as an ingredient in many outstanding recipes from the Italian gastronomy.
