For the main event on Christmas day, you always want to impress. We all know that cooking a roast turkey for a gathering of hungry mouths is no easy task, but the Cotswold’s Fish Hotel have come up with their perfect recipe for the most delectable roast turkey dinner, complete with mouth-watering Hasselback potatoes. Of course, no Christmas table is complete without wine…
Whilst a white Burgundy makes for a classic roast turkey pairing, we believe that an energetic and fruity red is just as delicious – especially when it comes in a magnum! Indulge in your festivities with Cabernet Sauvignon Domaine De Saissac, Igp Pays D’oc 2020 Magnum for a show-stopping table centrepiece at an incredible price.
Brimming with ripe and luscious dark berry fruit balanced by delicate cedar-spice notes, this red hails from the heart of Languedoc in southern France. The magnum size (the equivalent of two normal-size bottles) allows this wine to age more slowly and therefore develop greater complexity. Not forgetting, of course, it means more wine to go around!
It’s all hands on deck to whip up this festive feast, but while the wine is in the kitchen we think you’ll have some willing helpers…
Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4.
Smear the butter all over the turkey and season with salt and pepper.
Put in a roasting tin, breast-side up, and roast for 40 mins per 1kg for the first 4kg
Then 45 mins for every 1kg over that weight, or until the internal temperature reaches 65-70C
75g Butter (soft)
1 Clove of garlic
2g Chopped parsley
Chop the parsley and then the garlic finely.
Mix all the ingredients together and set aside ready for later
Sour cream & chive dip
25g Sour cream
3g Chopped chives
1g Garlic powder
Mix all the ingredients together.
Set aside ready for later.
20 large new potatoes
50ml Olive oil
Carefully cut lots of incisions into each potato making sure you don’t cut all the way through the potatoes.
Set the oven to 180 degrees and pre heat your roasting tray for 10 minutes.
Add olive oil, potatoes and salt into your preheated roasting tray and cook for approximately 25 minutes.
Once the potatoes are golden brown and soft, add the garlic butter you pre made earlier and cook for a further 5 minutes.
Place into a serving dish and add the sour cream & chive dip.
