Introduction to Spanish ham

What makes a truly great Spanish ham? Our ham expert’s presentation will help you discover why this delicacy is so highly prized and clarify the complexities behind its production. From to Serrano to acorn-fed Ibérico, get a taste of the styles and distinct flavour profiles of jamones from different regions of Spain.

A slice of the action with some hands-on carving and tasting

Our expert will guide you through the all-important first steps of “opening” a ham, how to cut the perfect slice and explain how to care for and get the most out of the leg once you’ve done so. 

Now for the big moment - it’s your turn to pick up the tools. Under the watchful eye of the master carver you’ll have the chance to put the lessons into practice (and take home the results to enjoy at your leisure). 

After this, you’ll taste some excellent Spanish wines perfectly matched with our range of hams and have the chance to savour everything you’ve learned. Finally, make sure you take advantage of our 10% discount on any Brindisa delicacies that you want to buy on the night. Salud!
