Pig shaped baker

pig_baker

Looking for a unique earthenware baking dish? The Pomaireware Pig Shaped Baker might be just for you. Handmade by the people of Pomaire, Chile, the distinctive baker looks as good on the table as it does in the oven. Suited for use on an electric stovetop, microwave or 450-degree oven, the dish is perfect for a variety of meals. From paella to casseroles, this little piggy cookware has you covered… except for the fact that I can’t help noticing that he has no back. Anyways, I’m sure a roast beef would look quite good in the belly of this little piggy.

The best of ham, the best of ham holders

acornjamonero

In case you are in the market for a fifteen-pound, $1400 ham, you better act fast as they are going up in price at the end of next month. A new 100% tariff imposed by the USDA will effectively double the price for all imported Spanish Iberico hams. Delicious beyond compare, the hams have a unique, nutty flavor due to their free-range acorn diet. A Spanish delicacy for years, the hams were only recently introduced to the US.

The pinnacle of ham achievement would not be complete without a serving device priced to suit. The Supreme Hardwood Ham Holder with Swivel Grip is “the world’s finest jamonero”. Constructed from dense Sapeli hardwood and heavy gauge stainless steel, the ham holder forms a solid base upon which to fasten your prized ham. The inclusion of a “gyro-clamp” (complete with carved acorn handle) allows for the ham to be turned for easy access to precision slicing. Hand crafted by the Pantaleon family, the jamonero will set you back $995.

Out of your price range? The good news is, you can taste this delicious ham at an affordable price. It’s definitely a treat, but the ham is available in (carefully weighed) small quantities.
