Maestro Cortador Paco Carrasco,, Saul Sola, VP Sales/Marketing 5J with Sophie Gayot

 

Last night when I went to Fig &Olive Melrose Place to celebrate their first anniversary, we were greeted with ham. A few words of Spanish and I was able to get more of the 100% pure breed Iberico de Bellota brought to us by the company 5J, and cut by “maestro cortador” Paco Carrasco. Hmmm, that was good (of course, it is one of the best cured ham in the world)….

Chef Pascal Lorange prepared a special menu for the occasion. See the pictures below.

Fig & Olive Melrose Place is on the GAYOT.com list of top 10 Los Angeles Hot Spots.
