Food Photo Friday: Spain loves pig

Mallorca, Spain

Mallorca is just a quick 8 hour ferry ride from the great street art Valencia and I could not pass up the chance for sun and fun in Spain. But as I knew it was a big tourist destination I hit the supermarket to stock up on food.


Holy cow! Or perhaps I should say holy pig!


leg of pork


There is an entire section of the store dedicated to pig products. I’m not sure if you realize this in addition to all of the different pork  products pre-packaged this is a giant wall of pig leg!

My family heritage is supposed to be Italian and Irish but I am really starting to think my ancestors are Spanish.




Much thanks to Hostal Atlanta that hosted me in Palma, Mallorca. It was one of the cleanest hostels I’ve been in and the staff was so nice and helpful.

    Am starving. Eating a packet of skips and the prawny goodness is diminished in the face of such piggy flavoured goodness. Going home to cook some pork belly after work.

    It’s not a nice air dried iberian ham but is the closest I can find in my pre-xmas fastidiousness.

    Try growing up in the USA with a jamon hanging over your kitchen sink…and not knowing that was not normal. :) I did just successfully smuggle in a lomo for my parents for Christmas!
