Italian pancetta is among the best of high quality processed bacon with rich flavours reminding you of Parma ham. I found this package of thinly sliced Pancetta in the food hall at Illum's.
I used the packages to prepare two equally delicious dishes. First, I made a delicious entree, green asparagus baked with pancetta in the oven. The other package provided moisture to a roasted Guinea Fowl.
When visiting an Italian grocer, do try to substitute your streaky bacon with thinly sliced pancetta, e.g. at breakfast, or in your Pasta alla Carbonara. It is a completely different experience from the often cheap stuff you find in your supermarket shelves.
