An Italian bacon that is made with the meat from the belly of a pig. Herbs, spices, and peppercorns are added for extra flavor before it is cured, air-dried, and lightly smoked. When served, it may then be thinly sliced or cut into smaller slabs from the larger section of the bacon slab. Much like lardo, speck is often used as an ingredient to flavor other foods, such as main dishes, vegetable dishes, sauces, soups, and stews.
