A GROUP of hog raisers in Davao City called on Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio to maintain her order temporarily banning the entry of live pigs and pork products amid the African Swine Fever (ASF) outbreak in parts of Luzon, giving assurance that there is enough local supply, including ham for the Christmas celebrations.
IN EVERY bit of product that comes out of a country, a bit of the country’s soul is in there, and where there is soul, there is art. Spain’s jamón (ham) contains the nation’s animal, fungi, and weather conditions, and for these to be expressed, it needs an artist — the maestro cortador.
JAMON iberico, made from the Spanish native Iberico pig, is one of Spain’s most beloved exports. At its best, it’s a whole leg with a black hoof, a telltale sign that you’re eating a cured ham from the pampered Black Iberico pig.
