Traditional Spanish Serrano ham from family run business ‘Torrente’ in the Andalucian town of Maria. Available in 8kg examples the Gran reserva is a ham full of Spanish flavour. Textured meat is accompanied by an exquisite aroma, carved thinly and left to breath this Serrano ham intensifies delivering a full grand reserva flavour.
Very well balanced with a nice layer of matured fat the grand reserva ham is cut in a ‘V’ which means than the outer rind has been removed prior to curing which makes this ham very easy to carve. Chosen by hand and maturity tested these Serrano hams are certainly among the very best from the region, undiscovered outside Spain until now the gran reserva is sure not to disappoint coming from a unique environment over 3000 feet above sea level.
Flavour notes & gastronomy:
Appealing excellence, aromatic, supreme texture. Goes well with all the usual suspects, Manchego, heavier red wines and nuts but also accompanies quince extremely well and also exotic fruits such as passion, kiwi and also fig. Can be used in all cooking but best flavoured to decorate cold soups such as gazpacho, or thin shavings over salads.
Store in a cool, dry place. Once cut into your gran reserva ham will last up to 6 weeks, rub extra virgin olive oil over exposed meat to prevent drying out and cover.
