Turkey Tuesday


A turkey run on a farm that welcomed school groups and visitors.

In France, bigger is not necessarily better and as turkeys are usually smaller than those in the US, cooking time is shorter. And because they are free range the quality and taste of the meat will be superbe. My French mother-in-law would lay a rasher of lard (bacon - fumé or not fumé) from the butcher atop a whole bird before bunging in the oven and the fat basted the skin. Stuffed with chestnuts or a breadless herbed pork farce and served with grilled seasonal vegetables and an autumn fruit - figs, apples, airelles (easy to find and mistaken for cranberries) - a feast was inevitable.
A very Happy Thanksgiving to one/all and until next week... - BPJ
