Henkelman Jumbo Plus – 18 Years!

I just had to drop a quick post about a Henkelman customer in Miami. These guys have a Jumbo Plus vacuum packer at their Spanish tapas restaurant where they serve the most delicious Jamón Ibérico de Bellota. This is a slow dry-cured ham from Spain that comes from black-footed pigs who fatten themselves on acorns (bellota). It is easy to compare it to Jamón Serrano or Prosciutto di Parma, however, genuine Jamon Iberico has no real equal.

The artisans that hand slice the jamón straight off the bone-in leg, take their craft very seriously. They will slice from different parts of the leg to highlight the different textures and Jamon Iberico flavors of meat and fat running through this veritable mine of pleasure. Then gently place it in a circular pattern on the plate. Or, if you would like to take some home they can place it in a vacuum bag, pack it in the 18-year old Jumbo Plus and send you off, giddy with your prize.

I know…I kind of speak about this stuff as I would a lover, but after the times I spent in Madrid, it has become something I cannot get enough of.

Ok, back to the point at hand, these guys have been using a Jumbo Plus Henkelman vacuum packer that they purchased in 1995. That is 18 years of faithful service!

This Is My Kind Of Town, Chicago Is…

I am really excited to be going to the NRA Show in Chicago this weekend. This is the second year in a row I will be attending, and I am sure it will be just as fun as last year.

The delicious food from the multitude of great restaurants the town has to offer has my stomach already growling. However, I have a specific spot which I am trying to get reservations at, the new restaurant by Michelin-starred Chef Shin Thompson, Kabocha | Japanese Brasserie.

I understand he recently closed his restaurant, Bonsoiree, to open this new concept. I am very interested in his work, because, well, it looks so yummy, but also because he has purchased several Henkelman Vacuum Packers.

At the first restaurant, Bonsoiree, he purchased a Jumbo Plus, our smallest unit with a really strong pump.

For the new place, Kabocha, he decided he needed a larger vacuum packer, and decided on the Jumbo 42, he fitted the unit with two seal bars, front and back.

I feel the repeat business he has given us is a flattering testament to the quality of the machines we provide. I really hope I will be able to take our friends from Henkelman to dine at his attractive restaurant.

I will report back about the trip and our time at NRA 2013.
