Orce Serrano Hams offers ceramics in a plethora of different shapes and designs offering the convenience of small tapas bowls to platters for your sliced meats, olive oil pourers, gazpacho bowls and much more – all hand painted in Spain. Spanish tapas are traditionally small bites of food enjoyed with a drink in Spain so why not create your own piece of Spain with some traditional and vibrant tapas servers?

Spanish foodOrce Serrano Hams could be described as the home of Spanish ham and cured meats or indeed an online Spanish experience where you can discover a comprehensive range of Spanish flavours from the simple Spanish olive to the aromatic and complex tones of Iberico ham.

Upon entering Gayle and Iain’s online delicatessen you will be introduced to an array of mouthwatering cured meats and tapas from full Spanish hams to locally hand made chorizo’s, pork tenderloins, bacalao salt cod, mojama and much more, the Spanish food enthusiast is literally spoilt for choice. Cured meats are sourced from local family run Spanish businesses many of whom have been producing hams and sausages for generations, sausages for example are hand made twice a week and are packed to order for each individual customer to ensure your flavour of Spain is as fresh as it possibly can be. Serrano hams are hand picked directly from the curing houses, tested for maturity and wrapped in muslin before being dispatched the same day – Spanish food simply does not come any more genuine than this!

Iain says: “The website is designed to be your first port of call not just for quality Spanish food but also product information, regional cuisine, Spanish culture and a fresh approach to online Spanish food shopping”.

Gayle continues: “Working with small family producers here in Spain has always been exciting and has offered the business both fantastic artisan produce as well as some unique product knowledge which we can pass on to our customers”.

Think Spanish food and you immediately think ‘tapas’.

Working closely with local butchers the business has also created a recipe for the ‘Fire chorizo’ as was the customer demand for something a little hotter Gayle and Iain went to work with La Carniceria de Julian in Orce village and created a recipe for a rather hot and spicy ‘fire’ chorizo – unique tapas indeed.
