Prepare and cook the ultimate Christmas feast
The star of the show
We all worry about buying, preparing and cooking our turkey but this year we’ve strived to make the whole process as stress-free as possible. Our food technologists have spent months cooking hundreds of turkeys to find the perfect combination of cooking time and temperature - and rest-assured, we only buy turkeys from farmers we know and trust.
