Invented by Bellota-Bellota®, we turned to the Maison Bernardaud for its exclusive production: “Like a decanter for exceptional red wines, it’s the perfect complement to a Bellota-Bellota® ham.” The sides of the dish are inclined at 45°, and include perforated “lava flows” in order to hold the strips of Bellota-Bellota®. At the centre of the volcano, a small candle keeps the Bellota-Bellota® ham at its ideal temperature for tasting, to better enjoy all of the taste-inspired emotions provoked by this exceptional ham.
A jamonero is essential when cutting an entire ham with the bone in. It helps to ensure safe slicing and, depending on the model, it improves the yield from the cut; it’s for this last reason that all of our “jamonero” models have a rotating system that allows them to be cut in all 360°.
The book, from the famous publishing house of La Martinière, is both an anthology of the history of Jamón ibérico and a collection of recipes by outstanding chefs based around Bellota-Bellota® ham. The breed of the pig, the dehesa, the method of production will have no secrets for aficionados of this ham, who will find in its pages all the answers to their questions.
