Prosciutto Americano Sliced - La Quercia
|Availability:||In stock (13)|
Herb and Kathy Eckhouse started La Quercia, in Norwalk, Iowa, to create premium quality American prosciutto. Their appreciation for prosciutto grew out of the three and a half years they lived in Parma, Italy. Their ambition to create their own came from their desire to take the bounty that surrounds them in Iowa to its highest expression. They wanted to contribute to the growth of premium artisan-made American foods by offering fine quality, dry cured meats. Iowa, with its abundance, was the natural place to do this.
La Quercia Prosciutto Americano is a fine quality dry cured ham made with methods adapted from Italy. Free from the limits of Italian tradition and denomination controls, they have made changes in trim, handling, salting, and curing to achieve an American product to stand next to the great hams of Europe.
