Tillerman's First Mention of Food (Comida)

Jamon Serrano.  I know he went to Menorca (Minorca) to sail 
Lasers, but I knew what I was looking forward to; his food posts.  
Yeah, the next time I gybe (jibe) a Laser, I'll use my hiking stick 
(tiller extension) to free the mainsheet from the corner of the transom.  
But if I ever get to Spain (Spane), I'll order the Jamon Iberico,
(Pata Negra), which feeds primarily on acorns.  It is said to
virtually melt in one's mouth (boca). 'til manana................


  1. If you go to Spain, you have to order Jamón ibérico de bellota. Dude, seriously good stuff.

    1. Agree. The soft, thin slices, while superbly good, cannot compare to this plate of heaven.
