Tie up the ham in a cheesecloth or a large, clean dish towel and put it into a pan just large enough to hold it.
Add the wine, onion, bouquet garni and fines herbes.
Bring to a boil, cover and then cook very slowly for five to six hours.
The ham is done when it is easily pierced by a skewer.
Unwrap the ham, remove the rind and press the parsley, pepper and bread crumbs onto the ham.
Place it in a very hot oven, preheated to 475° F. [250° C], for five to 10 minutes to brown it slightly before serving.
