The Gricia!

Gricia 1


Hello dear foodies! Today it’s time to dedicate our recipe to a classic Italian excellence. The Gricia! Also known as the white Amatriciana, for the absence of the tomato inside. In fact, the Gricia seems to be born before the pasta Amatriciana when the shepherds (nearby Rome) brought with them Guanciale (local type of bacon), Pecorino cheese, pasta and pepper to make a quick and satisfying dish of pasta. Beautiful, delicious, flavorful and peppery. Very tasty!!! One of the ingredients that make this recipe is the Guanciale, a local pig cheek bacon . The other … the sheep cheese: the Pecorino! The recipe has been sent by a Roman restaurant in the popular neighborhood of San Giovanni. Thanks Leon! We hope you’ll  enjoy it! 😉 Read more
