I always knew the French had their own version of bacon, but until I met Kate Hill I thought it was all unsmoked variants on petit salé. But in Gascony, Hill says they favor a lightly cured, smoked bacon called ventreche. Ventreche (ven-tresh) tastes more like fresh pork and less like a cured meat, and is normally kept pretty simple: Pork belly, salt, black pepper and smoke. | @huntgathercook Foods, Bacon, Kochen, Tapenade, Smoking Recipes, Carne, Charcuterie, Gourmet, Food
