Product information

Boneless Bayonne ham approximately 5kg

Cured Bayonne ham, an exquisite delicacy originating from the Basque region of France, is a great example of preserving and transforming pork into a sublime culinary experience. This renowned ham hails from the picturesque town of Bayonne, nestled in the Pyrenees foothills. Its production dates back centuries, intertwining tradition with craftsmanship.

The flavour of dry Bayonne ham is a harmonious symphony of salty and savoury notes, with a subtle sweetness derived from the careful curing process. Craftsmen skillfully prepare the ham by massaging it with salt and allowing it to air dry for several weeks. The unique microclimate of the region, coupled with the Atlantic winds, contributes to the gradual curing of the ham. Over time, the ham loses moisture, intensifying its flavours and developing a rich, complex taste that lingers on the palate.

The production of dry Bayonne ham is marked by precision and patience. Once the curing process is complete, the ham is hung to air dry for up to a year. This extended period of aging contributes to its distinctive texture and deep flavours. The result is a ham that boasts a marbled appearance, delicate aroma, and a remarkable taste profile that embodies the essence of the French terroir. Whether enjoyed thinly sliced on its own, paired with artisanal bread and cheese, or incorporated into gourmet dishes, dry Bayonne ham remains an embodiment of culinary craftsmanship and regional tradition.
