SEVILLA, CAPITAL OF ANDALUSIA AND A FAVORITE PLACE FOR QUESO Y JAMÓN, MAINSTAYS OF SPANISH CUISINE.

SEVILLA is the capital city of Andalusia and located in the South of Spain. It is one of the largest Spanish cities with over 700,000 inhabitants.

Sevilla occupies the valley of the Guadalquivir River. The river, with 60 navigable kilometers, was an important harbor during the Spanish conquest of the American continent. Silver and gold from the New World arrived to Sevilla through the river and were distributed throughout the country from here.

The city of Sevilla is famous worldwide for its culture, monuments, traditions and artistic heritage. This is the birthplace of Flamenco and the city where the most amazing Easter processions take place. But Seville is also the neuralgic center of the South of Spain, a city full of life and possibilities.

Welcome to one of the most charming cities of Spain. Seville’s rich history has left the city stuffed with innumerable monuments like the awesome cathedral , the third largest in the world, the Giralda tower, the wonderful palace of the Reales Alcázares, the magical Barrio of Santa Cruz with its narrow streets, the Maestranza bullfighting ring and the passion for Flamenco an the perfume of orange blossoms on every corner.

Sevilla is also well connected to Madrid by the Spanish high speed train AVE and an international airport.

Background and History

Spanish ham is greatly prized as a gourmet food both in Spain and around the world. It is eaten regularly in most Spanish households. In fact, not only is Spain the largest producer of air-dried-cured ham, Spaniards are the number one consumers in the world! There are various types of cured ham in Spain, ranging in price from economical to very expensive.

There are basically two different types of cured hams in Spain, jamón serrano or “mountain ham,” and jamón ibérico or “Iberian ham.”

Jamón Serrano – There are almost 2,000 producers of Serrano ham in Spain. Eighteen of these producers formed the Consorcio de Jamón Serrano Español in 1990. The name Jamón Serrano is now controlled by the European Union since the year 2000 and it protects the processing of this product, although it does not apply to a specific region.

Jamón Ibérico – This ham is made only from the Iberian pig. The breeding of the Iberian pig is restricted to an area in Southwestern Spain and Southeastern Portugal. Although fed some cereals, these pigs also roam countryside and feed on acorns.
