The versatile Ventrèche - French Pancetta
Ventrèche is essentially unsmoked bacon in a roll. Ideal for cooking, it is quite versatile and pairs with eggs, pasta, stews and vegetables. Perfect for Charcuterie Boards & Platters.
D’Artagnan’s Ventrèche is made the same way it has been in France for generations, so that you can enjoy the savory taste of cured pork belly in your cooking.
Some would argue that pork belly is the pig’s greatest gift to us. The French have found many ways to prove that point, but we think ventrèche makes the strongest argument. Ventrèche is pork belly that has been rubbed with salt, pepper and garlic, rolled up into a log shape, tied and then cured. Similar to pancetta, ventrèche is beautifully marbled pork with a firm texture.
The flavor is rich, salty and very porky. Keep some in the refrigerator and see how many ways you can use it. We are sure you’ll discover myriad ways to work this one into your kitchen routine.
