Hebs on Landward
« on: October 14, 2016, 10:40:53 pm »
This evening's (14 October) Landward programme had a slot on a new Heb marketing co-operative. You can get Landward on BBC iplayer.  The interviewer advised that they were eating Heb lamb: I would have thought hogget in order to get a decent killout but could be wrong. I'd also have wanted to rest the meat for while, but hey-ho.  Anyway, a good little plug for the breed and the co-operative  (and the butchery) with some attractive shots of the flock including a four horn. I thought all in all it was a reasonable plug. Thoughts?

I thought Marian was very articulate and made some good points.  The interviewer I thought asked some odd questions, implying it was very unusual to find Hebs in Scotland, and that Marian had 'brought them home' -  ??? .  The butcher was really enthusiastic and came across as very positive.


For the cooking - obviously done under difficult conditions with a kitchen full of film crew.  I kept thinking 'give them some gravy and mint sauce someone'  :hungry:
