A guide to the best of Spanish cold meats

Spain has a wonderful tradition of spiced and smoked cold meats, known collectively as embutidos or sometimes fiambres (cold cuts). Most regions have their own specialities, so it’s possible to eat your way around Spain just by visiting a really good delicatessen!

Chorizo is easily the most famous embutido; you can find it everywhere in Spain, and plenty of other places around the world too. Other cold meats are not quite so well known. So here’s a guide:

Chorizo dulce, made from pork meat seasoned with pimentón dulce (smoked paprika)
Small chorizo sausages, a Spanish classic. These are made with ibérico pork.
