From Costco United Kingdom — Brindisa Bellota 75% Ibérico Acorn Fed Ham on the Bone, 8kg, £349.99.

Brindisa’s Ibérico de Bellota hams have been matured for 3 years by a family who have cured hams since 1910. Made only from free-range pigs who forage for the acorns in the oak groves of southwest Spain. The pig’s diet of bellotas (acorns) give these hams their special succulence and flavour, when cured for 36 months in Guijuelo, Salamanca. The ham has a balance of savoury and sweet flavours with a nutty aroma, which is complex and long-lasting.

Brindisa offers a story of Spanish foods. Brindisa’s name comes from the word ‘Brindis’, which means to raise one’s glass in a toast, and Brindisa celebrates varied cultures, landscapes and exceptional foods of Spain. Founded by Monika Linton in 1988, she believed the foods she loved in Spain deserved to find a wider audience and now, over 30 years later, Brindisa has put Fine Spanish food firmly on the gastronomes’ map of the UK, delivering to the UK’s finest restaurants and delicatessen’s.

From Costco United Kingdom — Kings Platinum Edition Wagyu Beef Jerky, £22.99

Wagyu beef is renowned for being incredibly marbled and extra tender. The curing process involves using salt to draw moisture from the surface of the beef, while spices and vinegar work their magic to create a delicious mouth-watering flavor. After the beef is marinated, it’s dehydrated in specially designed jerky ovens which create a dry heat to draw any remaining moisture from the meat. Once dehydrated, the jerky is sliced into thin blades of beef before it’s sealed for freshness.
