The story of Ibérico Week (May 20–25) at Jaleo by José Andrés (The Cosmopolitan, jaleo.com) begins in the rangelands of western Spain, where black-hoofed Ibérico pigs run free in family groups, feasting on sweet encina acorns. The acorns impart a delicious nutty flavor, making jamón Ibérico de bellota Spain’s culinary jewel. In celebration, Jaleo offers a weeklong event showcasing the beloved pig in a tasting menu. Enjoy side-by-side tastings of jamón Ibérico from two different regions—Cinco Jotas and Fermin—Solimillo bellota de manzana, bellota tenderloin with roasted apples and rosemary; or Fricando de carilleras, braised cheeks with morel mushrooms and grilled presa Ibérica, cooked to rosy-pink medium rare and so exquisite it’s like eating a fine cut of beef. Of course, there is Arroz de costillo Iberico, paella with Ibérico shoulder and rib meat. There are 12 dishes to enjoy, including a refreshing dessert featuring gin and tonic sorbet with lemon and aromatics. $150/person ($75 additional for wine pairing).
