The Iberian Ham, Spanish Gastronomy in the Coast of Barcelona

Iberian Ham, an experience for gourmets

The Spanish Gastronomy of the Ham

The Iberian Ham is without doubt one of the standards of the Spanish Gastronomy. Its taste, texture or flavour, are some exquisite singularities which wake up authentic pleasures to our palate. The Iberian Ham, has different levels of quality depending of the variety and designation of origin, being both, the Iberian Ham of Guijelo and the Iberian Ham of Jabugo the most prestigious.

The origin of the Iberian Ham dates back to the Roman period. There have been found in Tarragona some fossilised samples. Obviously, over the years, the healing processes have evolved but we can say that, in the Roman period, people of the Iberian Peninsula, enjoyed the delights of the ham.

The drying process of the Iberian Ham has an origin both functional and cultural. The careful process whose phases include salting, settling and drying, the ham undergoes a curing and ageing process which last for over 2 and 3 years. But whereas other sources say, that it was the way to recognize non-Christian people living in the Peninsula, when Jews and Muslims were persecuted and expelled after 800 years living in there. Both religions are against of the pork meat consumption.
