Boom! Have you ever experienced paella? I mean have you really experienced paella the way it should be made? Would you love to surprise your guests with a unique food experience they won’t forget? Well, then we highly recommend Waler and Annabelle (local owners of Fire & Rice Paella) to host your next big shindig.
What makes their paella so special? It’s cooked fresh on-site and they use imported jamon directly from Spain which is carved in front of your guests.
What is jamon?
Jamón is at the heart of Spanish culture and cuisine. While Spain’s regions vary in their local food traditions, cured Serrano and Ibérico hams are treasured from coast to coast, from the markets of Barcelona to the bars of Galicia and everywhere in between.
There exist two great traditions of artisanal cured hams in Spain, both of which are a source of enjoyment and great pride among Spaniards:
Jamón Serrano is a cured country ham made from conventional pork. From time immemorial in the mountains of Spain, people have packed fresh hams in sea salt and hung them from their rafters to cure. A year to eighteen months later the jamones are ready. With no cooking required, these hams are carved into paper thin slices and served with a glass of Spanish wine, or added to a myriad of recipes like croquetas de jamón or added to sautéed vegetables or stews.
