Inspired by the Umbrian speciality, our British Porchetta Roasting joint is pork at its most divine. [more...]

It should be roasted slowly so that the flavours and juices of the fat can infuse and moisten the meat as it cooks.

Easy to carve and a wonderful centrepiece for your Sunday lunch, this culinary masterpiece is created by lightly-curing a boned pork loin which is then rolled with thyme, rosemary, fennel, garlic, lemon and seasoning.

Naturally, our expert butcher strings this glorious joint by hand. What an interesting alternative – or addition – this would make to your Christmas Turkey! What a delicious Sunday
Roast! Delivered fresh ready to roast or to portion and freeze if you wish.

For best results we recommend removing the joint from the vacuum packaging, patting it dry with kitchen towel and leaving it uncovered on a plate in the fridge overnight. This ensures the skin dries out and gives you the best chance of crisp and golden crackling. Remove from the fridge 2 hours before cooking. Pre-heat the oven to 200°C (180°C for fan ovens) gas mark 6 and massage salt into the skin, lightly brush with oil and place the joint in a roasting tray. Weigh the joint.Roast in the oven for 25mins per 500g, plus 25mins. Remove the joint from the tray, allow to rest on a warm plate for 20 minutes.

Keep refridgerated between 0-5°C. Suitable for freezing.

Delivered in perfect condition. Cooks like a dream. This is our third Porchetta joint, all for family occasions and not a scrap is left. I don't normally eat crackling but this is irresistible.

Disappointing. Should have read the description more closely: this isn’t an Italian-style succulent loin of pork, rather it’s a cured pork closer to gammon. Still tasty, but not what I was expecring with the name “porchetta”!

Can’t comment yet. We’ve bought it for New Years Eve. It looked superb when we unpacked it, and if it’s as good as other Dukeshill products we’ve purchased, it will be superb.

I have not tasted my Porchetta yet as it is in the freezer awaiting Xmas Dinner. It arrived well chilled and looks appetising so hope it will go well with my selection of fine Italian wines

A beautiful tender and tasty joint. It was difficult to know whether Apple sauce or Cumberland sauce were appropriate. Maybe the answer is take your choice or let the stuffing be the only enhancing flavour.

This was my second such roast. Again the flavour and tenderness of the meat were exceptional. When I followed the Instructions with the first joint the Crackling was the best I or any of my guests had ever had. This time the Crackling was below par but purely because I failed to follow the directions on the pack to the letter but decided I knew better. Ignore the directions at your peril.

Once again our Porchetta Roasting Joint was as expected, even better than the previous one we had at Xmas!. Needless to say that we had no left overs! which it was a bit dissapointing! Apart from that, it was perfect. Also,can I make a suggestion? Could you arrange for the printing on the cooking instructions label to be made larger? We could hardly read them, and as I wanted it to be cooked to perfection,it took several attempts to get it right! Hope this review is helpful and look forward to our next delivery.

The porchetta joint we ordered for Christmas arrived exactly as promised and we had an email predicting delivery time. It was delicious hot on Christmas Day and then splendid cold three days later when we had 14 visitors to feed. I would certainly recommend both Dukeshill and this particular product.

Superb. Ordered for a large family lunch (10 people). Was absolutely delicious although I did not follow the cooking instructions which seemed too harsh to me. I removed packaging and let skin dry out, I then rubbed with some sea salt, crushed toasted fennel seeds, olive oil and chilli flakes and left in fridge overnight. I brought to room temp for a couple of hours and then cooked low (160 degees) and for slightly less time than advised. The crackling was stunning and although I intended to, I did not need to pick up the heat at the end. I left to stand for at least an hour before serving. No end of compliments...! First time using Dukeshill. Great customer service. Will definitely order again.
