Spain’s bounty in Soho
GOODS & SERVICES • FOUND Larder
Only pedigreed pigs certified by the Spanish government can be designated Cinto Jotas pigs. Exalted by the Spanish, they roam in complete freedom over meadows and acorn forests.
We frolicked with them in Jabugo, a town in the Huelva province known for its signature jamón ibérico. Later, in Cinco Jotas’ curing cellars, which date to 1879, we sampled the product, rich and smooth.
To experience this bounty, you can fly in for a tasting at Cinco Jotas headquarters. Closer to home, Despaña (Soho/Queens) will deliver you a quarter-pound, freshly sliced ($100). Or you can walk in and buy a whole leg and/or, for that special someone, a Cinco Jotas gift set that includes a carving knife with a whole shoulder. –Isabelle Kellogg
