Pan de Jamón

This news video at the BBC reminded me about this Christmas tradition - Pan de Jamón (Venezuelan ham, raisin and olive bread).

It’s a Venezuelan Christmas tradition, but as there are so many Venezuelans living in Tenerife, or Canarios who have lived in Venezuela and returned (many with Venezuelan born children), Pan de Jamón is yet another culinary tradition that has been introduced to the island.

If you’re in Tenerife, you can get this bread at many bakeries and possibly supermarkets now. I’ve had it delivered (special order), by the bakery in El Tanque.

Either way, look out for it, because it’s delicious and not usually available year-round. If you can’t buy it, you could have a go at making it: here’s a recipe.
