Hugh Fernley-Whittingstall - how to roast a turkey

Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall made light work of Christmas on his River Cottage Christmas Fayer show on Channel 4 and More4 last year.

In his previous series, Beyond The River Cottage, Hugh famously created a ten bird roast - aka bird in a bird in a bird in a... well you get the picture!

Hugh’s 10 bird recipe included:

• Woodcock
• Partridge
• Pigeon
• Pheasant
• Guinea fowl
• Mallard
• Chicken
• Aylesbury Duck
• Goose

Each bird also contained minced pork, goose fat, herbs and mace stuffing too...

We love Hugh but we’ll probably just try to do one bird well rather than attempting ten at the same time...
