The family is current holidaying in Zafra in the Spanish province of Extremadura. It is a wonderfully understated place, very charming and with fabulous cooking and wines to keep out the early springtime chills. We are staying in the Hotel Los Balcones de Zafra which is gorgeous and very friendly. Our chief aim of the trip was to sample the best jamón in the land and I think we have managed to accomplish this feat. Pics will be posted.
