Welcome. To Bayonne, I'm Francoise the promotion, ambassador, for Bayonne ham today. I'll explain why, cured ham is an integral part of this city's history. Our. Basque, ancestors. Began living, in this area during, the time of the Roman, Empire. At these days the, Basque Country straddles. The border of France and, Spain. Beyond. Ham has always, bonded us it, has supported, us and protected. Us it. Is our treasurer. The. Rich flavor that fills your mouth as you chew can, be equated to our rich history. Hmm. This is perfectly, aged. Continuing. For over five hundred fifty-five, years our, annual, Bayonne, ham Fair, is an important, event, people. From all corners of Basque Country come, to socialize, and taste the ham. The. Life of the Basques, is recorded. In the stones of our old churches, the. Production, of ham began, during the 12th century in this region. During. That time the farmers, devised a method for preserving the meat of boars hunted, in the mountains. What. Was it that enabled, the farmers, to discover, this method, of meat preservation. Access. To salt a, special. Kind of salt available. Only in, this region. What. Makes it special. It's source is in the Pyrenees, Mountains, when. They were formed, during prehistoric, times, there, was an uplift, of the ocean floor and sea, water came up and was trapped inside the mountains. The. People, of Bayon which. Is near Bayon made. The discovery. They drew water from 200 meters underground, and, used it for the production, of salt. The. Salt sourced, in the Pyrenees contains. 26. Different minerals, in. Those early days salt, was considered, as precious as jewels and cured, ham was a special, food known only in this region. The. British forces who, were in charge of this region at one time were, the first to take note of this. Later. It is said king louis xi, who led the unification. Of france as, well as King Henry the fourth, served, it during, political, negotiation. Banquets. And. This. Is how the exquisite. Cured ham made by the masks, became, famous throughout, Europe, because. It was exported, from the. It's, going to be known as Bayon Han. Whether. The occasion, is festive, or not, Bayonne. Ham is, always. A part, of our dinner fare all. We needs to smile is cured ham it bonds. Our hearts. It's. Now 1 p.m., there. Are so many people out on the streets. Let. Me check the map. After. I left the train station, I crossed over the long bridge to the marketplace, in, grande on then.
