FrontRunners: Fine Swine

  • Jamón Ibérico de Bellota

    Pork lovers, rejoice: Spain’s top jamón, Cinco Jotas’s Jamón Ibérico de Bellota, is now available in the United States. Offered by La Tienda (www.tienda.com), a Virginia-based purveyor of foods from Spain, the ham comes from purebred pata negra pigs that are finished on a diet of acorns. The meat is salt-cured and aged three years in a cellar in Jabugo, in western Spain. The result is a fragrant and nutty ham with a satisfyingly meaty texture. A 6- to 7-pound ham is $1,290.
