serrano ham in Vancouver
anyone know where to get it, i figure oyama is a really good bet but is there anywhere else?and is it almost identical to easily sourced prosciutto?
If you're talking about the one from Spain, Bosa has it. Can't remember if Cioffi in Burnaby carries it not but I'm pretty sure they do. I find the serrano has a sweeter taste to it and there's something else but I can't pin point it but it's good. If only we can find iberico jamon (black pig) from Spain that would great. What hubs did a couple of times was purchase various types of parma, serrano and proschiuto from various sources and just pigged out on it with friends. Cioffi has the best parma. Whole foods has one from the states that a lot people like, it's not bad, pretty creamy/butter however, they have this raw taste to it that we're not fond of.
well nonfob i took your advice and headed to bosa to buy some iberico, and almost dropped when the woman told me the price ($20/100 gr) i mean i knew it wasn't gonna be cheap but $200/kg !!!! i opted for the serrano at $4/ 100gr, not cheap either but a price i was prepared to pay, and hey its pretty tasty stuff as well, btw if bosa sells it at that price i can't imagine how much oyama charges, any idea?
In West Vancouver, Sebastian & Co. Fine Organic Meats had some very good looking Spanish Serrano when we last visited. Plan to shop there when you want (and are prepared to pay) the finest meat available.
