Porchetta [porˈketta] is a savoury, fatty, and moist boneless pork roast of Italian culinary tradition. The body of the pig
is gutted, deboned, arranged carefully with layers of stuffing, meat, fat, and skin, then rolled, spitted, and roasted, traditionally over wood. Porchetta is usually heavily salted in addition
to being stuffed with garlic, rosemary, fennel, or other herbs, often wild. Porchetta
has been selected by the Italian Ministero delle Politiche Agricole, Alimentari e
Forestali as a prodotto
agroalimentare tradizionale (“traditional agricultural-alimentary product”, one of a list of traditional Italian foods held to have cultural relevance).
