A Brief History here:
I'm a relative newbie here, but am an experienced and passionate home charcuterie maker here in the UK and recently crossed paths with a veteran member MypinchofItaly where we were discussing the use of guanciale - this is one of the first and most easy things you can make...
Serves: 4 | Preparation time: 15 mins | Cooking time: 40 mins
Spaghetti: 380 g
Guanciale : 150 g
Cherry tomatoes: 100 g
Black garlic: 4 cloves
Thyme: 1 sprig or a teaspoon of the dried one
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO): 2 tbsp
Parmigiano, grated: to taste
Salt: to taste
I mentioned using Guanciale in one of my recipes and Morning Glory expressed that is almost impossible to find. I have spent a while looking and I have found a supplier on Ebay, it comes from Macerata so is real, it is quite expensive but a little goes a long way.
It costs £22.13...
