There's supermarket ham, and then there's the proper stuff. We source our hams from Royal warrant holder R B Woodall, whose wonderful air-dried ham comes from Waberthwaite in Cumbria, and has a unique mellow flavour developed over 12 months. Our ham provider Country Victualler, produce a wide range of hams including the Alderton glazed in marmalade, the honey glazed ham studded with cloves, or the Victuallers Orange & Stout Ham. Each ham is cured and cooked in a different way to ensure a unique taste, full of flavour and succulent. Weald Smokery also provide a succulent Sussex ham which is absolutely delicious in a picnic or a sandwich.
Wine Match: Medium-bodied, fruity reds such as Pinot Noir are great with ham. For air-dried hams try a light aromatic white such as Pinot Grigio, or Fino Sherry.
