If you have ever visited central Italy it's impossibile that you haven't come across a a shop or food truck selling a magnificent sandwich with Porchetta
It is difficult to establish precisely the year of the born of this product, but it was surely invented before the Romans. This recipe has reached its highest expression in a small village in the province of Rome called Ariccia, that nowadays, thanks to this gastronomic excellence, has an important place in the most famous culinary guides and books.
What mainly characterizes the Porchetta di Ariccia IGP
is the awsome crunchiness of the bacon rind, obtained thanks to a precise cooking. The meats used come exclusively from porks born, bred and butchered in Italy and are perfectly balanced in a 70-30% proportion between the thin and the fat parts. It is season using only products cultivated in Italy as rosemary, garlic, fennel seeds, finally a lot of black pepper and good sea salt.
All the Ariccia porchetta producers would agree that the best way to appreciate this product is a simple sandwich, in this case "less is more".
So we're giving you our personal recipe: sandwich with Porchetta di Ariccia IGP
