pancetta peppata

elle | Jan 14, 2005 03:03 PM

I'm looking for a pancetta that is ubiquitous
in Italy but hard to find here. Instead of
the pancetta that is round like a sausage -this
is a slab, with a pepper crust on the top and
layers of meat and fat. I've seen it at
Buon'Italia in NY but theirs is just a hunk of fat.
Lidia Bastianich cooks with it on her show on PBS -
hers is perfect - meaty with a layer of fat & pepper.

Does anyone know a source in NY or mail order?
