When I made plans for this blog I didn’t want it to be only recipes, but also about food I “just” enjoy eating and not prepared myself. The amazing stuff in the picture is… in my opinion… the best ham in the world. You heard me. And I don’t feel I’m exaggerating in the slightest. Iberico Ham or Jamón Ibérico is truly the best.
I’m generally a big fan of dry-cured hams. I enjoy them all: Parma ham, San Daniele ham and of course the simpler and cheaper spanish version of the Ibérico ham, the Serrano ham. But nothing compares to the Jamón Iberico. It is also called Pata Negra ham… which translates into “Black hoof” ham. That’s because this ham is made from the Iberian black pig.
