Ham Carving Competitions

jamon iberico

These hams are from a competition for cutting hams in Andalucia. The competition was in Cordoba which has some of the best hams in Spain. The hams are Iberico hams whcih are very expensive.

There were quite a lot of good hams and cortadores de jamones and good knives as well.

One day i want to be in of of these competitions and maybe be a world champion ham cutter!

Very Expensive Ham

I like to learn about kinds of Spanish ham and a very special ham that is made in Spain is jamon iberico. Not everyone knows what a jamon iberico is but it is from a very special pig which is black and there are only a few left in Spain.

The ham is very expensive and very good my dad had some sent to him and he made good tapas with scrambled eggs and gambas.

One day i hope to buy an jamon iberico and cut it for my dad as he likes it very much. I think this picture is one of the best hams.

Orce wine and sausages

Sorry for not being on my blog for a long time but I have been busy at the swimming pool and on my bike.

Today I was helping my Dad take some fotos. This one is Orce wine, lomo, chorizo, olives, cheese and pate. It is for sending to other countries that don't have those kind of things. The Spanish cheese is really really tasty and so are the olives and chorizos. People think it is starnge that I like olives but they are very nice.

Next time I will do videos for my blog

Orce Shops

This shop is in  Orce,  the  mans  name  is Juan - jo and he has  lots of Spanish hams and sausages. He is a very nice man and always tells me the best sausages and jamones to buy.

Sometimes in the summer Juan-jo has HUGE pumpkins that he sells and he grows these in his own garden. I like shopping in his shop because he has lots of things and I like his tomatoes which are very ugly but very tasty with ham and cheese!

My First Spanish Ham

This is my first jamon so today I will cut some jamon and I will make some tapas for mum, dad and all friends. I'll make recipes with my jamon today, it is 9kg so there will be lots of tapas.

I chose this ham by myself and the butcher let me push the bone in the ham to smell if it was cured.

La proxima vez tapas de jamon!
