I hope a wonderful Labor Day was had by all and if you didn’t go all out or a “little ham,” this past weekend you still can with this week’s food pick. I’m very excited to have found what is a world-renowned cut of meat available in a conveniently pre-sliced package from Spain; Iberico Ham produced by Fermin Salamis. Iberico is the legendary breed of pig popularly known as Pata Negro or black hoof. The breed is considered the best for producing high quality dry cured hams with unsurpassed taste and aroma and are considered the “Kobe beef of pork.” Fermin’s Iberico Ham is sliced traditionally thin and the best way to enjoy this delicacy is with some peaks of baguette, a wedge of Manchego cheese and a glass of Spanish red wine (think Tempranillo or Garnacha). Usually $12.99 per 2oz package, Fermin’s Iberico Ham will be on sale for only $10.99 so be sure to treat your palate to a little gift. Cheers and Bon Appetit!
