A brief glossary

IBERIAN: There are 3 types:
– The Bellota (acorn) which comes from free range Iberian pigs fed exclusively on acorns . This is the Rolls Royce of hams and the one we offer.
– Recebo – which comes from Iberian pigs fed on acorns and compound feed.
– Cebo which comes from Iberian pigs fed only compound feed.

SERRANO Serrano comes from the name Sierra (mountain in French). Serrano ham is most similar to French mountain ham. Our BERNUY is dried naturally at 1000 m altitude in the area of Segovia –it has a sweet flavour as a result of slowly maturing in this way

CUL BLACK de BIGORRE : A Pyrenean breed of pork which had almost disappeared, ours comes from Matayron a farm-in Lasserade in the Gers. A rare French hams that is most similar to the Iberian Spanish ham.

MANGALICA: A woolly pig of Hungarian origin which was once endangered. Unknown until its recovery by Juan Vicente Olmos. Its breeding was restarted in Hungary. In Spain, the ham undergoes the same maturing and drying process a drying as Iberian ham, which gives it a unique flavour well worth discovering.

All our hams are available to purchase from the restaurant (full ham, half ham, with or without bone or shoulder – please see our price list at the back of the menu
