Episode 9: Spanish Hams with Karl Hess

We go ham (LOL) with noted gourmet Karl Hess in today's discussion of Spain's greatest delicacy: Jamón Ibérico de Bellota. That is, hams from extremely pampered pigs. Plus, the predilections of ancient Romans, the glory of Chinese ham as garnish, and traditional holiday meats. (The audio's a little weird on this one, sorry!)
