"hanging hams..." Bayonne Local Custom Tip by Jeannette1
Bayonne Local Customs: 5 reviews and 14 photos
Bayonne hams (jambon de Bayonne) are very famous in France....similar to Italian proscuitto but with a more distinctive taste.
If you get a chance, go visit a shop where they dry hams the old-fashioned way (production artisanale as opposed to industrial).
The demonstrations are free and you get to taste some of the products. Of course, there is a shop and if you are like me, you won't be able to resist buying some food items.
