Baked Ham: history
The historical bibliography wants that the first cooked ham prepared in our country dates back to over 2000 years ago, when Apicio, the famous gastronomist of Augustus, inserted this preparation among the most delicious recipes. However, unlike today, the cooked ham of the ancient Romans was not boned.
With the fall of the Empire, it seems that this delicacy also fell into oblivion, disappearing forever from the tables of our ancestors, only to reappear in the Renaissance as a delicacy at the tables of the popes and the powerful. Around the mid-1800s, when Trieste became the main port of the Habsburg Empire, merchants began to talk about an extraordinary cooked sausage from Prague.
Baked Ham: some curiosity
Thanks to its undisputed versatility, cooked ham is the most consumed salami in Italy. Sliced simply in a sandwich for a tasty and nutritious snack or as a base for many recipes in the kitchen (from the trivial toast to the stuffings and the most complex fillings), the cooked ham has always fascinated by its delicate but tasty flavor. One of his most ardent “fans” was Edouard Monet who even inserted him into his still life where this salami dominates on a silver platter.
