Think of Pancetta as bacon’s cousin. Bacon and pancetta are both made from the belly of a pig. The big difference between them lies in how they’re prepared and cured. To prepare bacon, pork belly sides are brined and then smoked. Pancetta, the Italian counterpart to bacon, is made by seasoning a pork belly side with salt and lots of pepper, curling it into a tight roll, and wrapping it in a casing to hold the shape.
