Where can I get guanciale in Orlando?


Re: Orlando, you never know. But we agree: we think a Chazz: A Bronx Original would be great in Orlando!

Enjoy the amatriciana!

Where can I get guanciale in Orlando?


I own Chazz: A Bronx Original along with Chazz. Thank you for the great compliment. I love to hear that people enjoyed their visit. And Amatriciana is def one of my favorite dishes... it's one of my go-to's.

Most of our salumi is either housecured or made for us in small batches in NY; howver, for great guanciale and salumi, visit Boccalone's website. Chris Cosentino makes really great stuff in small quantities in San Fran. They ship everywhere. Panceta is also a fine substitue. In fact, they also sell a package that includes guanciale & pancetta, so you can compare both. (Try the n'duja, too. Spicy Calabrese spreadable pork sausage. Incredible).

Mario's recipe is a good one (see link below). We make all of our pasta in-house every day, but good dried pasta substitutes for spaghettini include bucatini or, even better, perciatelli.

Happy cooking! And thanks again.

Gonna be in Baltimore for 2 days.

I agree. Woodberry is a great spot.
