Porchetta Ariccia, +/-3.25kg
Porchetta is Italian slow roasted pork that is seasoned with herbs, namely fennel and garlic, and roasted in a custom Italian oven for over four hours at 500 degrees Celsius. This delicacy is popular throughout Italy but originated in the town of Ariccia, in the region of Lazio. The pork is cleaned, deboned and arranged carefully with layers of fragrant herbs, succulent meat and delicious fat, which are then rolled and trussed before entering the oven on their long journey to perfection. The meat is extremely juicy and flavourful, and is surrounded by scrumptious, crispy crackling. Slice off a few pieces and serve in a bun with a simple salmoriglio sauce and slices of lemon. We love eating porchetta with focaccia and a peppery rocket salad!
