1. Porchetta Ham

    Porchetta Ham

    This recipe is Inspired by a trip I took to Rome. Porchetta is an Italian pork roast that is slathered with fennel-scented rub and slow cooked. It’s usually made from pork loin or pork belly, but ham is also a great foil for this herbaceous rub. 

    In Rome, I came across a huge antique store with a stand serving sandwiches in the middle. The staff was hacking off portions of flavorful porchetta and placing on slices of focaccia bread and provolone picante cheese. The setting and flavor made this an unreal experience.

    If you live in Boise, the village loaf from Zeppole Bakery is a close second to the Italian focaccia. 

  2. Al Pastor Ham

    Al Pastor Ham

    Mexico City is a yearly pilgrimage I take to experience my culture and food, especially tacos. Al pastor is a traditional Mexican dish made with pork seasoned with chiles, oregano, cumin and achiote. I have always loved the orange red color achiote paste adds to meat. Pineapple and onion are other key ingredients and the flavor combo of them caramelizing together is amazing.

    In Mexico, you’ll see al pastor cooked on a trompo, similar to the vertical grill you might see at a shawarma or gyros shop. That’s because the concept was introduced to Mexico from Lebanese immigrants. Al pastor originated from two cultures fusing together to create something delicious. 

  3. Huckleberry Ham

    Huckleberry Ham

    Huckleberries remind me of the fantastic summers we have here in Idaho. I love our home so much! I love huckleberries so much! The bounty we have in our state is amazing and foraging is a favorite pastime. In the spring, it's time to hunt morels and in the late summer it’s huckleberry season.  

    Huckleberries look like tiny blueberries, but their flavor has wild and earthy notes. The not-too-sweet berries pair with Kurobuta ham to create a delicious combination. True to my Mexican roots, I’ve added some guajillo chiles to the sauce for complex fruity and smoky flavors. 



    This is a super tasty ham for any holiday or occasion. Breadcrumbs mixed with chopped prunes and bacon encase the ham with smoky pork flavor and the sweetness. This combination is the perfect accompaniment to create a super moist ham with lots of flavor. 

    You can make the breadcrumbs up to a week before to save on prep time, or you can easily get it done while the ham is roasting in the oven. You want to have enough breadcrumb mixture to pack it generously over the entire ham. If you have leftover breadcrumb mixture, place in an airtight container and keep it in the fridge. It’s delicious sprinkled on top of cooked vegetables, lamb, pasta, etc. 



    This classic French hot sandwich is really a fancy grilled ham and cheese sandwich. This recipe is easier than it looks and it’s a great addition to your sandwich go-to repertoire. 

    I like using toasted brioche- it is soft enough to absorb the mornay but still toasts up nice, but it’s also good on sturdier bread like a rustic sourdough or anything you have on hand. Just be sure to sear it up in a pan with lots of butter before topping it with the cheese sauce. 

    Kurobuta ham makes this a sandwich fit for a king (or queen)! Please, eat this with a fork + knife.
