Parma ham tasting experience

Visit a typical Prosciutto Bar in Parma, Emilia Romagna, the worldwide famous area for Parma Ham production, and discover the making of this amazing and delicious italian product.

Making a Parma Ham is a long and painstaking process. All producers of Prosciutto di Parma share one goal: To cure a leg of pork with pure sea salt in order to keep the meat as sweet-tasting and as supple as possible. The hams are made from the rear haunches of the pig. The curing is controlled carefully so that the ham absorbs only enough salt to preserve it. By the end, a trimmed ham will have lost more than a quarter of its weight through moisture loss, helping to concentrate the flavour. The meat becomes tender and the distinctive aroma and flavour of Parma Ham emerge.

The tour last 3 hours and includes a visit to the production process, a visit to the special section dedicated to the maintenance of rare breed of endangered cow, the museum and a shop where you can buy local products.

A Ham tasting is also included, accompanied by local cereal bread, cheese, dessert, coffee, glass of wine and water. Suitable for the whole family.
