The art of carving jamón is exactly that, a beautiful art which takes practice and patience

At Despaña one of our goals is to share some of the most remarkable Spanish traditions, that is why we would like to introduce the culinary curious and Spanish food enthusiasts this unique art through private class instruction with our Master Carver.

Classes are offered at our Soho Tapas Café after business hours, starting at 7:30pm until 9pm. This one and a half hour class includes a brief history review about jamón with a full hour of hands on carving instruction for up to two people.

The biggest advantages of taking a private class is that it can be adapted to your needs with one on one direct interaction with the Master Carver as a guide.

The price of a Private Class for up to two people is $500 and it includes:

Entire bone in Serrano Jamón (Ibérico or Bellota available at additional cost)

(Ham Stand)

Recipe booklet

Jamón carry bag

Further Information

Two more people can attend the class for an additional $50/person. A class with 4 people in attendance would be a 2.5 hour class in order to give each trainee time to carve. However, please note that only one bone in jamón is part of the basic package. Additional jamones are available for purchase. (If you have more than 4 people in your party that would like to participate, please contact us directly to discuss pricing and scheduling).

We also offer a 15% discount on all other carving accessories for any participant of the class.

*Class using an Iberico Cebo $700 / Class using an Iberico Bellota $1,100

We hope to see you with knife in hand, safely carving a luxurious piece of bone in jamón!
