Guanciale in Ann Arbor?

I've bought it at Sparrow's in Kerrytown. Call and see if they have it.

Brunch in Ann Arbor

Cafe Zola's is always packed after 10, so expect quite a wait if you get there later. Zingerman's brunch is great but it's not downtown. But you can get reservations on OpenTable and zip past everyone waiting. That is if they have any left, due to the UM/Msu game this weekend.

Pancetta and Hominy Polenta

I'm sorry, no insult intended but boiling smoked bacon to get the smoke flavor out seems kind of silly. Why not buy unsmoked bacon to begin with? Maybe I'm overlooking something. I don't care what anybody says, I've been making my polenta in the oven now for a while and I would dare anyone to tell the difference. I make it a lot more often now since I switched to this method.
