Estrella Damm Chef’s Choice

This winter, the city’s most talented chefs are creating their own unique dish starring the iconic Spanish Jamón ham, paired perfectly with an Estrella Damm beer.

A unique culinary experience for beer-lovers and foodies will be on the menu from 12th June – 9th July at 21 great Auckland restaurants.

While most diners have some knowledge of wine matching, the art of pairing food with beer is just as nuanced – and like wine, a perfectly matched brew serves to complement, contrast or cut.

The bespoke dishes have a Spanish twist, incorporating Jamón (premium cured ham), and are designed to go down a treat with Estrella Damm, the beer of Barcelona brewed since 1876.

Jamón is cured from the noble Iberico pig and other breeds. The Iberico pig traditionally roamed free-range in the oak forests on the border between Spain and Portugal, feasting on acorns.

Today most are reared on farms, but the 24 to 48-month curing process refined over thousands of years is still used.  The result produces a ham with intense flavour containing a hint of sweetness.

The dishes will be prepared as part of Estrella Damm’s Chef’s Choice, which will give Aucklanders a unique gastronomic experience while showcasing quality food matching and the wide variety of restaurants in the city.

Each restaurant will put their own creative spin on a Jamón dish which will be perfectly paired and served with an Estrella Damm beer.
