Reviews and "Pupil" Feedback
"On Thursday this week, I went to the Brindisa Ham School together with my wife and 3 friends. What a superb evening - informative, inspiring and utterly delicious. Our sessions & tasting were hosted by Marcus and Greg who did a magnificent job. Nice to meet Mario who was also there. In all approx 2,5 marvellous hours for any foodie - especially one who love Jamon. Thanks to the Team for a tremendous time -- we’ll be back !"

"I loved the ham class and would highly recommend it to all lovers of the pig and aficionados of Spanish food and drink - 10/10"

"Our teacher for the night was Mario, the ham guru, who comes from Southern Spain and knows a huge amount about jamón. [...] The passion he spoke about it with really captured my imagination."

"Are you looking for a unique and different experience while in London? This is as good a place as any to start! I had a blast (as did the other participants) and would highly recommend the class to anyone even curious about experiencing one of the world’s most amazing cured meats in a new and unusual way."
