The world-renowned acorn ham from Spain has arrived at MAS and what a revelation. Moist, tender and oh so delicious the flavor of wild acorns and mast melt in your with the richness one would expect from an old, dry-aged steak. We are pleased to offer the 2 year-old Jamon Iberico de Belotta and the Palleta de Iberico, a shoulder cut, and are awaiting the chorizo. We still feature the 18 month old Reserva Jamon Serrano as well. These are arguably the best Jamon in the world and sustainably produced. Years back when MAS was a big baby a local gentleman, Steve Provence had the vision to produce these Jamon locally and the effort, while noble, soon ended with one Jamon for MAS. The fabled pata negra, or blackfoot pigs are the secret and their meat is extraordinary for its suppleness and beneficial omega-3's and "healthy" fats, i.e., not hydrogenated, or industrially manipulated for weight gain, flavor or effect. As well they are free-ranging pigs with acorns and hot summers on the Dehesas strewn with Holm Oaks. Come see what the fuss is all about. You can thank me later.
