Jamón Carving Master Class


Imagine you are the master carver!

Jamón carving is a tradition so ingrained in a Spaniard’s heart that finding a leg of ham on a kitchen counter is the norm. Sharing and savoring it at celebrations is expected. We, at Despaña, say Ole to that idea! This is why we are committed to offering our Jamón Carving Master Class. Our way of translating the Spanish style love for authentic bone-in jamón here in NY. Under our tutelage, you will learn the basics to feel comfortable at home slicing your own mouthwatering, delicate, luscious slivers of carefully aged meat.

The Despaña team, in collaboration with expert ham carvers from Fermin, Raul Martin and Cristina Garcia will walk you through the step by step art of carving a beautiful Serrano ham. Over the course of two hours, ‘trainees’ will engage in hands-on instruction with these master carvers in the heart of "Spain NYC", Despaña SoHo.

Here’s the deal, or as we like to call it “The Steal”
