The Kolikof Difference*:


Elevate your dining experience with Marcos 50% Iberico Paleta, an exquisite masterpiece that embodies the very essence of Spanish gastronomy. Handcrafted with precision and passion, this paleta (shoulder) is a testament to tradition, quality, and unforgettable flavor.

Our paleta is crafted from the finest Iberian pigs, known for their marbled and succulent meat. With 50% Iberico content, we bring you the essence of this prestigious breed's heritage, ensuring every bite is a revelation.

Paleta is a testament to the natural bounty of the Spanish oak forests, where our pigs roam freely and feast on a diet enriched with sweet acorns. The result? A Bellota masterpiece with a nutty, almost sweet, and wild herb-infused charm.

Marcos Salamanca's Free-Range Iberico Paleta carries the esteemed D.O. Guijuelo designation, a testament to its Certified Origin from the pioneering Guijuelo region, which established Spain's very first Designation of Origin (D.O.) in 1986. Guijuelo sets the gold standard for uncompromising quality.

Our products are a labor of love, meticulously crafted from Iberico pigs that flourish in the expansive Dehesas, where majestic oak trees create the perfect environment to nurture these exceptional animals. Here, the noble acorn takes center stage, not only as the source of sustenance but also as a rich reservoir of Vitamin E, a natural antioxidant that paves the way for a gradual, unhurried curing process, ensuring each bite is a journey into perfection
