Waitrose turkeys

Waitrose free range turkeys

A turkey promise

All Waitrose turkeys come from British and Irish farms and are carefully reared by chosen farmers who share our values and work to our standards on quality, food safety and animal welfare.
We know every farmer we work with, which means we can trace every bird back to the farm where it was reared. Put simply, the better we look after our birds, the tastier the meat they produce.

Step by step guide to carve your turkey


1. With a large sharp knife and carving fork, remove the legs by bending the thighs outwards and using the knife to cut through the hip joint. Slice down through the drumstick to divide the leg into the thigh and drumstick.


2. Then cut through the joint at the front to remove the wings.


3. Carve long slices down from the top of the breast, keeping the angle of the knife parallel with the meat.
