Jamón, The Podcast. Part One

My good friend Graham Roumieu, a very accomplished visual artist, made the above illustration for my podcast cover art. (And this one blinks every five seconds. Cool, eh?) I think it’s perfect. Funny but also elegantly simple and incisive. Thank you Graham!

In this first of a two-part series about jamón Iberico de bellota, I talk about the history of pigs and pork with author Mark Essig. If you are a fan of food and history, buy his book (see the affiliate link below). It’s impeccably researched and written in a plain, clear prose style, making it both enjoyable to read as well incredibly informative.

Get a taste of it by hitting play on the podcast link below. I hope you enjoy and thanks for listening!

    He estado en “la cuna de jamón” en el pueblo de Jabugo en La Sierra de Aracena en Huelva, y jajaj si dudes que es la cuna, hay una señal el los alrededores de Jabugo que dice “la cuna de jamón.”
    La Sierra de la Aracena es paraiso.
    I was born in New York City, live in New York City and will probably die in New York City, but there’s NO place like la Sierra de Huelva and NO jamon in the world equal to the jamon de La Sierra.
    Viva la Sierra.Viva Huelva.

    Y viva! The first photo in this post http://www.spainbymikerandolph.com/springtime-in-southern-spain/ is from the Sierra de Aracena. What a gorgeous place. Thanks for your comment!

      yes, I saw many rincones en la Sierra como esto. Hay magia en la Sierra, magia real. ¿De donde es la ultima foto de la página, la con las ovejas?

      Por supuesto el mejor jamón es el que dices,pero hay jamón en casi toda España y el de Teruel,con Denominación de Origen también
      es muy bueno.

        jaja. No cabe duda. Me temo que estoy un poco parcial por mi amor de Huelva.
