Brindisa Ham Home School
Time Out says
To be a true jamón carver, you must possess more than a sharp knife and a desire to shovel slender curls of meat into your mouth while cooking. If you want to learn the ways of jamón, you must put the work in. You must enrol in virtual ham school. Run by Borough Market restaurant and food supplier Brindisa, the ‘school’ is a mini-masterclass with carvers James Robinson and James Edwards, who will share their knowledge to willing students through a screen. Once you have passed the test (ie handed over your cash), you’ll be sent a tasting pack with some snacks and four kinds of regional Spanish ham to get you into the jamón headspace as they show you how to achieve the perfect slice. And then, when it’s finally safe to fly, you can take your skills to Salamanca, where locals will usher you away from the jamonera, and show you how it’s really done.
