Agree with the country ham, and basically everything else.

My favorite cured ham is probably jamon serrano, which is Spanish. And even better is jamon serrano negro, which is a very dark and flavorful jamon serrano.

Can generally only find those in tapas restaurants. Unfortunately have to travel to get to one. I wonder why there aren't more of those places about? We adore tapas and have turned on a number of other people to them (although the in-laws initially thought we said topless restaurant and not tapas, which led to an interesting conversation). But I guess the tapas thing could be another topic.

Bresaola, which I only recently had for the first time, is dried and salt cured beef from Italy (although it can be made elsewhere, learned all of this from a Google search).

I think it is pronounced bre-so-la, with the accent on the 'so'. Am just glad I did not have to pronounce it when I ordered it.

It was served with EVOO, lemon and pepper, and that seems to be the traditional way to do it. Sort of like carpaccio, which we love. But then again, I guess that too is another topic.

Happy New Year to all.

All of the above also except I haven't heard of some of them. I like all cured meats. A good smoked country ham is the best.

kyles, you did not include bangers, I love those things but cannot find them here in Eugene. I have a friend who lives in Wembledon and when she comes to the states she would fix bangers and mash, sided with peas and a sauce from pan drippings, worcheshire, wine and whatever, do not remember but it was really good. I have a couple of import stores here, I guess I had better ask and look around.
