IBERIAN HAM, CHEESE AND PICOS: A TAPAS OF A LIFETIMEAny self-respecting Iberian ham lover cannot resist the simplicity and exquisiteness of a delicacy like this, which, paired with a good wine, is a must for any self-respecting afternoon/evening of tapas.
We recommend you always have the best sliced Iberian Bellota ham on hand in case you have last-minute guests at home and you still want to show them that tapas are also served at home. And if you're less of a ham lover and more of a charcuterie lover, try a varied tapa with bread picos!
