Normally I start with my challenging meat experiments around November, when it’s not so hot in Spain already and that means you can go deep into cold smoking and turn on your climate chamber which is in hot weather roars like a jet plane and consumes 5 times more electricity.
Almost all the cooking processes come to its final stage by May. So I can get the best «harvest» of various meat specialities and entertain myself at other hobbies, like fishing, photography and travelling.
The best time for posting recipes is spring.
And today I’m gonna introduce my next favorite product. Ladies and gentlemen, Coppa (capocollo)!
