Bayonne Ham is now in the US!
What is Bayonne ham?
There is ham & there is Bayonne Ham. It is unique because of these 3 reasons:
- Bayonne Ham earned the Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) status in 1998, a label that guarantees the quality & geographic origin of a product. This dry cured ham is so inherently special & inimitable that it must come from Southwest France to be called Bayonne Ham.
- Four ingredients are essential to the production of Bayonne Ham: pigs, salt, air & patience. To qualify for production, the pigs must be born + bred in Southwest France & fed natural products.
- With a moderate saltiness & creamy finish, Jambon de Bayonne is unique + stands out among the rest.
I was lucky enough celebrate their launch with an induction ceremony at Bask, a restaurant in San Francisco.
Thank you for a lovely time, Bayonne Ham!
Now that you know more about this mouth-watering ham, run to your nearest grocery store & ask for Maison Agour, Delpeyrat, Mayte, Salaisons de l’Adour or Pierre Oteiza, some of the most beloved brands that are available in the United States.
