October 6th 2017 from 6.00pm at Larchmont Village.
Join us for a tapas dinner party hosted by maestro jamonero cortador (master ham carver) Pedro Liébana, who brings an expertise rarely found in the US directly from Spain to hand-carve JAMON IBERICO DE BELLOTA PATA NEGRA according to a centuries-old tradition.
With a unique, beautiful live performance, Pedro will hand-carve an ENTIRE LEG of Jamón Ibérico, one of the prime delicacy products available for meat lovers internationally!
More prestigious than its Italian cousin, prosciutto, this cured meat product has won prizes worldwide, and is very difficult to find in the US, especially freshly carved. Jamón Ibérico is made from black-hooved pigs (pata negra) that graze in ample space, feeding on acorns. The pig’s leg is cured for up to 4 years.
Join us for an authentic tapas experience, just like you would have in a top bodega in Spain, with a full dinner consisting in a gourmet tapas buffet, all products imported directly from Spain. Fill your plate, grab your friends, and enjoy a lovely evening in a panoramic terrace to the taste and rhythm of the best fiesta Española!
