Francisco Carrasco, Master Slicer

It all began in a humble, yet wonderfully special, family owned restaurant in Spain. Francisco was the artist tasked with hand-cutting and the placement of the ham they served to the local guests. Plate after plate, day after day, and year after year he perfected his art with the Jamón Ibérico Puro de Bellota becoming an expert at his craft. This awoke his keen interest in the culinary world and his passion for this profession. In 2005, Francisco attended specialty culinary courses and began conducting demonstrations in a variety of events and venues all over the United States. Today, he is considered one of the best among the few in this “relatively” new art in the United States. He is certified as a “Maestro Cortador” – Master Slicer, a specialty designation by the Official Spanish schools for his profession. He is also a member of the “Asociacion Nacional de Cortadores Españoles” and “Seleccion de Cortadores Internacional” both worldwide known and respected associations in this field.

The ham itself is a culinary delight. The animal is perfectly raised and the meat is expertly aged and cured. However, this art, which is passed on from generation to generation, provides for a lot more than a wonderful piece of ham. With Francisco, your event becomes a Jamón Ibérico Puro de Bellota culinary experience like no other. The perfect cut is presented with ease and perfection, combined with the passion and dedication for this noble profession, now recognized worldwide. If you have the chance to try one of these perfectly cut slices of this exquisite ham, you will not forget it. Each slice of the pure Iberico melts in your mouth, releasing unparalleled aroma and taste in every pore and corner of the palate. This intense and lasting taste perseveres, making the experience an irresistible and unforgettable one.

The qualities required of the perfect Master Slicer are consistency, class, patience, and dedication. Francisco possesses all of these qualities and more. Like a sculptor, he knows each piece of ham and what he needs to do to achieve perfection. His tools are meticulously Jamón Ibérico Puro de Bellota prepared; they must be impeccably clean, neat, and the knives perfectly sharpened. For it is not strength he uses, but precision and skill. Good pulse and elegant moves allow Francisco to deliver his best cuts at a rhythm guided by the eye, slow and precise. As a result, a very thin slice is produced that enchants the most exquisite of palates.
