We teach you some tricks to enjoy the ham in the best possible way during Christmas and at any time of the year. 1. Set the ham in a good place When you get at home your ham, you have to unwrap and hang it to aerate and follow their healing process. The ideal place is a cool, dark place, but not outdoors. At time to cut it, it is best to place it in a ham to facilitate cutting. 2. Tools A carving knife is essential for a good cut, other short-bladed knife to remove the outside and remove the skin and fat, and a sharpener, as the carving knife must be very sharp. 3. Remove the crust First the leanest part is consumed as it dries before, so we will place the ham with the hoof up. With short-bladed knife, remove the skin and yellower part of fat around the ham.

World Day of Spanish Tapas

The end of the month is approaching and with it the almost definitive goodbye to summer time. But not everything was going to be negative because, as every September 29th, we celebrate the Día Mundial de la Tapa (World Day of Tapas). Which originally referred to a piece of bread with a piece of sausage and served to accompany a drink or to cover it. That little but evolved piece of bread gives nowadays a special popularity to the Spanish culture. In Spain, there are many cities celebrating the day of the tapa, the tapa week, the tapa route… Madrid, Barcelona, Granada, Alicante, Segovia, La Coruna, Sevilla, Ávila… And more and more are adding gourmet touches to these small and not so small delicatessen. The main aim of this celebration, coincidentally or not, coincides with World Tourism Day is to foster or reiterate the role of gastronomy as a tourist attraction. In www.diamundialdelatapa.es you can see all the activities prepared for this day throughout the entire country.
