An ALICANTE resident has launched one of Spain’s first home ham cutting services.
Expert ham cutter Gonzalo Pérez Martínez created his ‘Jamonero on tour’ business to ensure not a slice of the cured Spanish delicacy is wasted.
“Ham cutting at home is a market that is rising fast,” Pérez Martínez told Teulada-Moraira Digital.
“The choice of the leg, like the importance of a good cut, is something that is better left in the hands of a professional.”
Pérez Martínez spent eight years in the hospitality industry with a speciality in cutting Spanish jamón.
He said there was a great need for expert ham cutting at events such as weddings, communions and birthdays, but also for home visits and dinner parties.
He added a good cut was vital to the enjoyment of a good leg of ham.
“The cut, veining and fat of a good acorn-fed ham will always make a difference.”
