HOW TO CARVE THE BEST SLICES OF HAM. WE’RE PLEASED TO INTRODUCE YOU TO THE BEST HAM CARVER IN SPAIN

Ham is Spain’s star product, but many different factors have to be taken into account before this delicacy can be perfectly enjoyed. One of these is how it is carved, as the taste of each slice very much depends on this. According to expert carvers, each slice should be the size of a credit card, which is a difficult task only achieved by the great masters.

The only thing that Sevillian born José Manuel Hidalgo Molero, a well-known friend of Fuerte Hoteles and regular participant in events held at Fuerte El Rompido, needed to become the best ham carver in Spain at the VI National Ham Carvers Competition, held recently in Madrid, was a good ham support and a well sharpened knife.
