The Flavor Experience
Named by Bon Appetit Magazine as "Food Artisans of the Year", Herb and Kathy Eckhouse in many senses define contemporary culinary pioneering. Using the finest domestic pigs and a well developed recipe, Herb, Kathy, and the staff at Iowa's La Quercia produce this domestic prosciutto that holds it own next to the greats from Parma.
Hailed by famed food critic Jeffrey Steingarten as "the best American or imported prosciutto [he's] ever tasted," this nitrate-free product is cured using only sun dried sea salt. Its flavors are subtle, nuanced, and impressive--sweet, salty, slightly nutty, and deliciously meaty. Use it as you would the finest from Parma: on your antipasto plates, in your favorite sandwich, or by itself with some crusty bread. We highly recommend it!
