In subtle or dramatic ways, they look and taste different. And yet these world-class products also have a lot in common. They’re worth getting to know — in the market, in the kitchen and at the table.
DEEP TIES TO THE LAND
Each Legend from Europe has been made for centuries in a particular place. Climate, ecosystems, the land on which the animals graze — in a word, terroir — contribute to the distinctive flavor of each product. To safeguard these qualities, the zone of production is strictly controlled.
You can count on Legends from Europe to be made in a pure and natural way — free of artificial additives or preservatives.
TRADITIONAL PRODUCTION METHODS
These foods come from producers who are passionate about making them in the right way, following traditions passed down for many generations. Each ham is cured, each cheese aged with the utmost care for the optimal length of time.
The standards of quality established by the producers’ associations are enforced by law and regulated by independent inspectors. What’s more, all of these hams and cheeses belong to an elite group of European products certified under the Protected Designation of Origin system — PDO for short — your additional guarantee of quality and authenticity.
