For those of us who live far away from our native country, a little nostalgia sets in during the holidays. But food always works great to cheer us up. Cooking all those delicious dishes and following the traditions of the season will make us feel a little closer to our homeland.
Pan de jamón (ham bread) is a staple at the center of Venezuelan Christmas tables. Every bakery starts selling this bread in early November. As you can imagine, the bread gives off a distinct smell while it’s in the oven.
I invite you to try it and surprise your family. Merry Christmas!
