Parma Ham

Parma ham, or prosciutto di Parma, is one of the finest hams in the world and it is grown in Parma, within Italy’s Emilia Romagna region. It is distinguished by its pinkish colour and a strip of fat running down on one side, and it is most commonly served as thin slices. Parma ham boasts an exquisite combination of sweet and savoury flavours, with a delicate aroma and a versatile profile of recipes it can go with.
