Many dishes in Spain, such as the cazuela or paella, are designed around an actual cooking pot or pan and so using the real thing can only improve your success in cooking Spanish food and give it that genuine Hispanic feel. At Basco we have sourced some of the best examples of their kind such as our terracotta dishes from Pereruela, where many of the best examples of Spanish terracotta come from.
There are some implements, however, that are almost essential to success. A good ham-stand and a thin, sharp knife are necessary to slice a Jamon Iberico or Serrano correctly and keep it in top condition. Moreover, as you gain confidence, you will find slicing ham as a pleasure in itself.
