Five finalists will compete to be crowned the UK Iberico Ham Carving Champion, and so you are invited to watch! Watch the competitors whilst you enjoy ham, tapas and drinks. There will be a ham carving station with Señorio de Montanera and a beer pouring competition with Estrella Galicia!

 

The competition

Finalists at the Ham Carving Awards will have two and a half hours for completing the carving of a whole ham. The judges will be looking for the carvers’ creativity, competence in carving, and judge of weight.

 

Sunday Brunch’s presenter Simon Rimmer and carving expert Jose Manuel will judge the finalists on the above. The winner will win £500 in cash, a trip to Extremadura to visit the Iberico pigs and even a ham carving trophy! Brindisa and the sponsors will organise for the runners up to visit Spain and all the finalists will receive a professional set of knives.

 

comments from monika

Monika Linton, Chairman and Product Director at Brindisa, commented: “ham carvers are treated like rock stars in Spain – such is their level of skill and charisma. Spaniard’s have a reverence for this profession as it is integral to the culture of the region. There have long been barista competitions, cheesemonger competitions and barbeque competitions, so, why not ham carving competitions? It has long been an ambition of mine to introduce a dedicated award to the UK and help bring the passion, skill and excitement to an audience of committed food lovers. It promises to be a great evening of entertainment in true Spanish style.”
