Producer: Volpi

In 1900, John Volpi arrived in America from his home in Milan, Italy. Longing for the vibrant tastes of his homeland, John founded Volpi foods in 1902. From his small storefront in St. Louis, John delivered authentic Italian cuisine to a new audience. Today, the Volpi continues to live out John's dream, supplying Americans across the country with fine Italian fare made from exceptional ingredients.

Region: USA

In the late 19th century, Italian families began to arrive in the United States by the hundreds of thousands. They brought with them memories and recipes from home, adding to an already rich culinary marketplace. Today, many of these early pioneers have passed their love for Italian cuisine on to a new generation. While times have changed, the recipe remains the same: traditional Italian favorites made the old fashioned way, with locally sourced ingredients hand-picked for flavor.

Pork Jowl, Salt, Dextrose, Spices, Sodium Nitrite.

The price was right, the shipping was perfect, and the guanciale itself is wonderful. I would order again from Ditalia.

Since I discovered the Volpi Guanciale, it was so flavorful that I have not eaten any other cured pork product. I may be unconventional in its use, but I disassemble the roll to separate the individual sections, and freeze the pieces. When ready to eat I then slice the frozen pieces very thin (0.5 to 1.0 mm) and fry the slices until crisp. Wow the flavor is intense and great!
Good food

This is a fine product that made an excellent carbonara and other sauces for me. The shipping and handling had me a bit concerned...the product seemed to be packaged to keep cool, but the ice pack was melted and the carrier left the carton in the hot sun. I would work with your carrier and package marking. Also, I paid over $20 for shipping, and presumed it would have had that additional attention for the additional cost of shipping. I refrigerated the product promptly and had no issues. I don't know what one more day in a hot truck or sun would have done to my confidence. Overall, I will buy again and looking forward to trying other products. Would get a five if not the shipping issue.
