Prepare a special dish with Iberian ham for Mother’s Day
Close your eyes, go back a few years and recall all those moments when the bell rang and you went out to the playground with your friends to enjoy break. It’s not hard to remember how your stomach used to rumble minutes before or that feeling of not being able to wait until you could open your backpack and find out what sandwich your mother had prepared that day, with all her love.
The more classic mothers would prepare a sandwich some salmorejo and a few slices of Iberian shoulder cured ham because they know for sure that this combination never fails. But there are also more daring and modern mothers who may opt for crystal bread filled with papada Joselito finely sliced accompanied with a fresh salad of apples and watercress.
But … what if the children decide to prepare lunch so their mothers can enjoy their day? If yours is in love with Italy, its culture and its beauty, you will win her over with spaghetti carbonara, where replacing the guanciale would be a fantastic option to include that aromatic and delicious coppa; and of course, the sauce is made only with egg yolk, Pecorino Romano and black pepper. Perhaps what she really likes is sport or a more easy going lifestyle, so in that case the best bet would be a chilled cucumber and melon soup topped with some Joselito Iberian ham flakes since it has been shown to be a 100% natural and super healthy food.
More ideas for other types of mothers! Because surely there are those who love Asia and still remember that rice sautéed with a thousand vegetables and a few slices of bacon that they ate on their journey east, what they do not know is that if it had been Iberian ham the dish would have become one of the wonders of the world. For those with more get up and go, use chorizo to finish off a vegetable stew of spring vegetables and free range egg yolk; you will see how a loaf of bread goes when mopping the bottom of the plate. And to top it all off, it is necessary to make a space for all those mothers who are chefs at heart, for whom an ideal gift could be some Pig-up tweezers so that all their dishes are perfectly presented, they are exclusive to Joselito and they are beautiful.
There are mothers of all types and it is also clear that none are like your own. Celebrate their day with the Joselito Iberian ham that you like most, enjoy it and take the opportunity to remember all those sandwiches that you took to school which now have a special place in your heart. Perhaps the ideal time to remember them is by preparing some side by side.
