Speck Ham 100g

Speck is a type of cured, lightly smoked dense ruddy ham. It’s typically made in South Tyrol, a province in northeast Italy known for its snow-capped Dolomite mountains and strong German-Austrian influence. Although a close cousin to prosciutto crudo, speck is worthy of its own distinction when it comes to cured hams.

It gets boned out before being rubbed down with a cure laced with spices like juniper and bay leaves. Then it is smoked and aged.
Tasting Notes: That spiced cure gives speck a deeper taste that’s more intense than prosciutto di Parma.
Unlike its “prosciutto crudo” cousin, speck tends to be browner in color and much denser. It’s well-marbled with a highly elastic texture and deep flavour. It has a savoury, smoky taste that’s laced with spices like juniper and bay leaf. On the nose, it gives off aromas reminiscent of the mountains.
Pairing Suggestion: Speck is excellent served on its own as a savoury snack or aside other cold cuts on a board.. It’s pretty awesome with some roasted sweet potatoes or served with some pasta. Do not forget to enjoy it with a glass of Rosé or red wine.
Bon Appétit!
