Carving Spanish Ham

Carving Spanish ham, one of the more common questions we get asked here at Orce Serrano Hams is how to carve a Spanish ham or at least how to start it off or "break into it". A Spanish ham can be quite a significant purchase so for it all to go wrong under the knife would be a disaster!

To try and demonstrate we have put together this short video which details how to go about cutting that first slice and acheiving the first plate of wafer thin tapas. Its worth noting that ham carving techniques differ quite considerably, this is simply my preferred method which is the most comfortable for me personally.

So there we have it, the first few slices. In the next ham carving video we will be demonstrating what happens when you get further down the ham and meet obsticles such as the hip bone and also keeping the ham moist and fresh.
