Take your chances, why not?
Head on down to “The Cellar” or the basement or whatever they call the bottom floor of San Francisco’s flagship Macy’s and check out this “Museo del Jamón” display.
A porcine horror show to get you in the shopping mood:
Its not natural, normal or kind
The flesh you so fancifully fry
The meat in your mouth
As you savour the flavour
