THE IBERICO HAM FROM SPAIN is one of the most extraordinary gourmet products in the world – an undisputed ‘gastronomic gem’. It comes from one of the last grazing species in Europe – the Ibérico black pig. Left to roam freely in the dehesa – the southern pasturelands – the combination of exercise and balanced diet renders the ham with a complex, lingering flavor and a signature texture that is both firm and tender. Much like Kobe beef, the black pig’s scarlet red meat is more marbled than other breeds. This sweet, buttery mono-unsaturated fat not only delivers an intense flavor but also makes it healthy to eat.
