Iberico Ham

ChefTel Mar 1, 2009 02:39 PM

I noticed on the menu at bar jamon that it says Iberico Fermin, is this still Iberico bellota, or would I have to go somewhere else to find the delectable iberico bellota?

    For Iberico de bellota, I will go with Pata Negra. Of course you can always get it at Despana, and just eat at their little table at the back.

      Fermin produces both Iberico and, a grade above even that, Iberico de Bellota. So you would have to ask which one the Bar was offering.

      All jamon Iberico products come from the black footed pig, the pata negra.

        Hi erica,

        When I said Pata Negra, I am referring to the little restaurant on 12th St. (Btwn 1st and 2nd Ave), not the pig.

        Pata Negra
        345 E 12th St, New York, NY 10003

          Kobe: Sorry!! I had no idea!! I now see that the OP is talking about eating it at a restaurant and not buying for home consumption!

        First of all the fact that they will no longer come with hosfs is rediculous, but I woudn't put it past the U.S. to do this.

        Anyway, thanks for all the info, I'll be in Manhattan in April so I may need to do some searching for this elusive ham, but it will so be worth it.
