"When you come back to Iowa from a strange place [Italy, in this case], you’re struck by the bounty and the beauty,”

Herb notes.

“We felt like we weren’t making much of that great resource.”

Herb & Kathy set out to elevate humanely raised Iowa pork to a top-class Italian delicacy, and they’ve done just that.

Per Iron Chef Judge & food critic Jeffrey Steingarten, La Quercia’s is “The best American or imported prosciutto I’ve ever tasted.”
