Please note: the Porchetta needs defrosting for 24 hours in the fridge before cooking.

  • The pork comes from Dingley Dell, a higher-welfare farm in Suffolk which has won numerous awards for quality, enterprise and conservation
  • The stuffing is prepared by hand in our Kitchen with lots of ground fennel, garlic, rosemary, sage and lemon zest
  • This version of the classic Italian dish come with a little card with serving suggestions and helpful cooking tips for perfect crackling

Try It With

  • For something a little special, try with our Dauphinoise Potatoes and serve with a side of honey roasted fennel & caramelised shallots with thyme
  • Serve with a warm salad of roasted butternut squash and wild rice with cranberries, pomegranate, hazelnuts and fresh parsley
  • In the unlikely event of leftovers, this makes for cracking sandwich the next day with some fresh watercress

Wine Pairing

  • Italian meals have been served with Italian wines for generations, so there’s no need to break tradition. Go for a Northern Italian White, which compliments pork and fennel but will also cut through that golden crackling. Try a Soave Classico (amazing value and has thankfully shaken off its poor reputation), a Orvieto or a good Pinot Grigio.

How We Make It

  • For this traditional Italian recipe, we use higher-welfare belly of pork, a really sumptuous and juicy cut
  • The Prep Team in our Kitchen make the stuffing with lots of ground fennel, garlic, rosemary, sage and lemon zest
  • They then add it to the underside of the pork belly, roll it up and secure it
