Barcelona. November, 2010

Spaniards take their ham seriously. Whether it’s the precious sliced-to-order jamon iberico de bellota (from the prized black-footed pig who's been fed a diet of only acorns since birth) or something much simpler bought pre-packaged in a supermarket. Here, a selection available in Barcelona’s central market, La Boqueria. (Is it any surprise that Spain’s first couple of the cinema, Javier Bardem and Penélope Cruz, first met while working on a film titled Jamon, Jamon.)
