If you want to buy ham, our flagship product, you're in the right place. Iberian bait ham and Iberian acorn-fed ham are two of the most delicious treats in our country, and everyone loves to savor a bit of them. Especially when they are hand-carved.
But, where can you buy hand-carved Iberian ham? At Enrique Tomás, we're going to tell you about the different options you have!
Where Can I Buy Hand-Carved Ham?
If you've ever wondered where to buy hand-carved Iberian ham, you should know that there are two answers:
In specialized stores dedicated exclusively to the sale of this delicacy, like Enrique Tomás, we offer this product in many forms. For example, our catalog includes whole hams, but also hand-carved or machine-carved slices, as well as chunks and shavings.
You can visit any of our stores and buy some hand-carved ham to enjoy today, or you can take home a vacuum-sealed package that you can open within a maximum of three months. To fully appreciate the flavors and aromas of the meat, you just need to wait a few minutes for the slices to separate naturally when exposed to air.
But if you don't have a store nearby, no worries! You can place an order through our website, and we'll deliver it to your location.
In these types of stores, you can find all sorts of products for the most discerning palates. Iberian ham and cheese are some of them, but they also offer fresh fish, fruits, preserves, and other products.
Some of the sliced packs they sell consist of hand-carved Iberian ham slices. Additionally, some supermarkets even have a butcher section where you can also buy your meat.
What Is the Difference Between Machine-Carved and Hand-Carved Ham?
Some people prefer hand-carved ham. However, it's important to note that the differences between this product and machine-carved ham are practically indistinguishable. It takes many years of palate training to differentiate between a slice of machine-carved ham and one carved by hand.
In any case, the key is to ensure that each slice is of the right thickness—thick enough to capture the flavor yet thin enough for its oils to melt in your mouth. At Enrique Tomás, we ensure that each and every one of our slices meets these criteria because after all the effort put into obtaining top-quality Iberian ham, we don't want to spoil it!
We care about delivering our product to you just the way you like it, which is why we offer it in so many formats. However, if you've grown tired of buying it pre-sliced, you can purchase a whole piece and our knife set to ensure your slices are as perfect (or nearly) as ours.
You'll enjoy the ham as much as we do!
