VIV RAPS IN KIRKWALL, DINGWALL & STORNOWAY
Viv Harvey, probably best known as a specialist butcher / demonstrator with the Meat and Livestock Commission, is now employed by RAPS UK to demonstrate the use of their products using their marinades and spices.
Sixteen attended the two and a half hour demonstration at Orkney College on Tuesday 26th October and another nine at Munros in Dingwall the following evening. Viv took in Stornoway as well before returning home for his next task - a flight to Botswana to assist there with specifications and training. Viv is no stranger to Africa , he has spent over 40 days working in Namibia already this year with a similar brief.
The international butcher showed a multitude of techniques and new concepts that those present were invited to take away and apply to their own businesses. Viv worked with Chicken Fillets, Pork Fillet, Loin of Pork, Thick Flank of Beef and a Shoulder of Lamb and all those who attended left with pots of marinades to do their own development work. One of the topical ideas was a roulade with a pork mince and Christmas pudding filling.
