Tournant Oyster Social ft. The Iberico Carver

  • Tournant 920 Northeast Glisan Street Portland, OR, 97232 United States (map)

We're so thrilled to welcome back Manuel Recio, aka The Iberico Carver, for our March Oyster Social. As one of the few Cortador Profesional de Jamón (Professional Ham Carvers) outside of Spain, Manuel shares the art of hand-carving jamón at various events, tastings, festivals and trainings throughout the country.

How lucky we are to have Manuel in the house, sharing his love and knowledge of true jamón ibérico, the crown jewel of Spain’s gastronomy. Each jamón—which takes years to produce—is a glorious expression of the relationship between the noble Ibérico pig, the oak forests in which they roam, and the master artisans that preserve their legacy.

In addition to jamón and oysters (a surf and earth match made in culinary heaven if there ever was one), we'll also be serving tasty tapas, salads and Spanish-leaning seafood dishes to make a festive evening of it all—and of course there will be plenty of beer, wine and fun cocktails from Andy too!

No reservations necessary, just drop by for restaurant-style seating. Hope to see you at the table!
