So will I get a bonk on the head if I ask what pancetta is?


Nope, although I will look at you a little funny.

Pancetta is pork belly that has been spiced, salted and dried; it's kind of like Italian bacon, only it's not smoked, and it's only the belly, as opposed to bacon which may also be the sides. It's usually rolled up in a sausage-y form, and then thinly sliced. It's also really, really yummy.


Funny looks I can handle. I can also handle googling "pancetta," which I did right after posting. I call lack of coffee the main culprit.
