Charcuterie Ratinaud : Guanciale

I bought this guanciale at Ratinaud to use in Carbonara however, when I got home and opened the perfectly-wrapped small-pink butcher-paper package, I decided it was far too pretty to not take a photo first.

Charcuterie Ratinaud is Halifax's only genuine artisanal charcuterie. You can find them at 2082 Gottingen Street or at www.ratinaud.ca.
