  3. During a whole hog butchery course in Italy we break down the pig and make strutto (rendered lard) and ciccioli (cracklings) with La Tavola Marche (farm, inn & cooking school) and Master Butcher Carlo of Calbianchino. Simply delicious!! The full recipe for how to make strutto & ciccioli are available on our blog: latavolamarche.com

    The farm is a sanctuary for the 75+ cinta senese pigs (an antique breed) known for their taste and fat.

    Filmed at an organic pig farm Calbianchino outside of Urbino, Le Marche.

    "Taste of Italy" is our series of short films about life, food & farming in Italy!
