Fairway Market’s Master Butcher Ray Venezia will perform turkey carving demonstrations on Saturday, Nov. 3, at Fairway Market in Stamford, Conn. (699 Canal St.) from 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m.; in Pelham Manor, N.Y. (847 Pelham Pkwy.) from 1-2:30 p.m.; and in Woodland Park, N.J. (1510 US 46) from 3-4:30 p.m. He will offer guests simple, easy-to-follow tips on making the most of the Thanksgiving bird.
Venezia, a third-generation butcher and Fairway’s meat director, often is called upon by the media to show how anyone can carve like an expert.
“We call Ray our master butcher, not only for his vast experience in his field, but also for his incredible skills as a teacher,” said Herb Ruetsch, CEO of New York-based Fairway Market. “He will make the turkey carver a star at the Thanksgiving table.”
Fairway Market offers a combination of traditional, organic and specialty foodstuffs. Each of the 11 tri-state locations is a fusion of the best specialty stores, organic markets and traditional supermarkets with the services of the neighborhood corner butcher, baker, cheese shop and fishmonger and the freshness and variety of the farmer’s market—all under one roof, according to a news release.
