Product Description

Herb and Kathy Eckhouse started La Quercia, in Norwalk, Iowa, to create premium quality American prosciutto. Their appreciation for prosciutto grew out of the three and a half years they lived in Parma, Italy. Their ambition to create their own came from their desire to take the bounty that surrounds them in Iowa to its highest expression. They wanted to contribute to the growth of premium artisan-made American foods by offering fine quality, dry cured meats. Iowa, with its abundance, was the natural place to do this.

La Quercia Prosciutto Americano is a fine quality dry cured ham made with methods adapted from Italy. Free from the limits of Italian tradition and denomination controls, they have made changes in trim, handling, salting, and curing to achieve an American product to stand next to the great hams of Europe.

La Quercia prosciutto is improved for quality, uniformity, and user's yield over its Italian counterparts. For many, it is hard to believe that America is making a prosciutto that rivals Parma's best. We were more than impressed with the quality. Now, you can be the judge.

  • Made from organic Berkshire cross pork raised with No antibiotics, No animal by products, and No added hormones. No added nitrites or nitrates.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By B. Soni on January 15, 2008
I first tried this Prosciutto at Mario Batali's Pizzeria "OTTO" in NYC, and then a couple of weeks later, I found it again at his restaurant Lupa. Mario Batali, for those of you who don't know, is the renowned Italian chef from Food Network with the long orange pony tail. His two Italian restaurants are always ranked #1 and #2 in New York City, year after year. He is known for his love of Italy, Italian food, and ALL THINGS ITALIAN. However, in his own restaurants, he has begun serving La Quercia Prosciutto di Americano... Simply because it is better. You must try this prosciutto if you like this meat. MUST TRY. It is simply the best prosciutto I have ever eaten (probably the best pig meat I have ever eaten, better than bacon, dare I say), and trust me, I have eaten a lot of pig.
