"Tamworth is some of the best ham I've ever tasted!"
— Bruce Aidells,
Founder Aidells Sausage,
Author, The Complete
Book of Pork.
"We love it!"
— Paul Kahan, James Beard Award Winning Chef/Owner of Blackbird, Avec and Publican in Chicago
"One bite of Tamworth and you'll wonder how it ever fell out of favor. Its texture is succulent, soft. The meat looks just a little pinker than most and golden, luscious fat holds it all in place. The flavor is unmistakable and dominated by sweetness with hints of burnt sugar or caramel."
— Zingerman's Mail Order
