What Makes Porchetta Special?

Porchetta is a traditional Italian dish made from a deboned pig, seasoned with garlic, rosemary, fennel, and other herbs, then slow-roasted to perfection. The result is tender, flavorful meat encased in crispy, golden skin. This delectable roast is often served sliced in a sandwich, or panino, making it a favorite street food in Rome.
