Stepping into a Flavour Festival at “Zapore Jai”

Stepping into Donostia’s “Zapore Jai” fine food store, Sylvain met me with a smile and a warm handshake, characteristic of his way in the shop.  I had seen the store’s name on products in San Sebastián Food’s shop, and Jon Warren had mentioned that I should drop in to the store to meet husband and wife co-owners, Sylvain and Aurkene.  They offer the world’s best Iberian cured ham (jamón serrano), sausages and cheeses to experienced and novice palates alike, transporting them to the arid terrain of acorn trees and wild-roaming black-footed pigs.
