3. Also, cut the goat cheese medallion into 4 pieces.

5. Add a drizzle of olive oil (if necessary) and some sesame seeds.

It's ready!

Why do we choose ham cubes for this cold skewer?

The ham cubes are obtained from the meat closest to the bone, specifically from the hock and shank areas. In these areas, when you can no longer getslices, the entire ham is removed and cut into cubes.

This meat, so close to the bone, has a more intense flavor and a unique texture that makes it the most flavorful part of the ham. That's why, for this recipe of contrasts, we've chosen the cubes. Plus, as a format, they fit perfectly on a skewer.

Prepare your Christmas meals with our recipes and remember that ham is the star ingredient of a great holiday table. If you're still unsure about your choice for this Christmas, we'll help you with this post: How to choose the ham for your Christmas hamper.
