Bucatini all’Amatriciana Go Get That Guanciale! – Episode 162

By Patrick

One of the truly legendary dishes in Italy and it contains an ingredient that can be hard to find guanciale, which is the dried pig jowell. YUMMY right! Well luckily if you are in the the North East and can get to a Fairway market then you can grab this speciality. Yes you could sub in pancetta but it is different enough to make a difference. So no adding onions to this sauce and if you have to go ahead and add a little garlic- I did.

Created in the town of Amatrice this dish originally was just guanciale and pecorino cheese- Hell that sounds just fine to me but after the tomato was brought back to Italy it got introduced to many dishes and well history of food is written new. So one thing is a must PECORINO!!!! Ok lets get eating – Oh and another little note- before Rome claimed the dish as its own the people of Amatrice actually proffered spaghetti.

    Woa, the galaxy is quiet tonite! I need to say, you've inspired me to cook some good stuff. I needed some sustenance after drinkin a bit o cactus juice tonight so I got some Gnocchi, onions, garlic and ham out of the fridge and went to cookin.
    I put some olive oil in the pan with onion and slowly cooked it, a chunk of garlic with some chopped up ham. Then I thought, What would Kahuna do? I found an old package of red pepper flakes and spilled about half of it in with the onion blend. Along with the fancy Gnocchi, it was a spicy late nite dinner. Thanks for the inspiration. How do you pronounce Gnocchi?

    I am sure you used Taylor Ham for this dish you described. I agree that Kahuna would have added red pepper flake. Depending on what time you cooked this, he may have added a fried egg and fakey cheese as well. Was there a nude child running around during the cooking process? That seems to help Kahuna create exquisite meals. I bet it was delish, Castello!

    My sons are jealous…my MIL is from Norway, so our son's middle names are “Thor” and “Odin” (didn't have the guts to do the scandinavian first names) Anyway, since they are 10 and 8 yrs old, they have asked many questions about their names, and we told them that we did consider the Italian names of Rocco and Enzo, and of course they prefer that. My 8yr old, Max, has a stuffed toy robot that he named Luca, so he was excited to hear that you chose that name for the newest Kahuna!

  • KAHUNA

    That is great- I love those middle names, those are like strongest man competition names. That is too funny that he has a stuffed animal named Luca.
