  • Reared outdoors with freedom to roam 24hrs a day, COOK turkeys are raised to the highest welfare standards on small farms in East Anglia and have been recognised with a Good Turkey Award by Compassion In World Farming.
  • Our duck is from Silver Hill Farm in Ireland, one of the most respectedhigher-welfare duck suppliers in Europe. As well as providing excellent duck – their particular breed is a closely guarded secret – they are serious about sustainability and are a farm with zero carbon footprint.

How We Make It At Our Kitchen

  • To create what is surely one of the seven wonders of the food world, our chefs start by making a delicious festive stuffing. Onions are sweated in butter, then in goes orange liqueur, chopped sage and orange zest.
  • This is then mixed through sausage meat, chopped chestnuts, sweet-cure bacon lardons and dried cranberries.
  • Next, the turkey: a generous crown is seasoned with salt and pepper, then filled with six whole, skinless duck breasts and a good amount of the stuffing. The crowns are rolled up, wrapped with treacle and beer-cured bacon and garnished with orange slices.

Sourcing

Reared outdoors with freedom to roam 24hrs a day, COOK turkeys are raised to the highest welfare standards on small farms in East Anglia and have been recognised with a Good Turkey Award by Compassion In World Farming.

Our duck is from Silver Hill Farm in Ireland, one of the most respectedhigher-welfare duck suppliers in Europe. As well as providing excellent duck – their particular breed is a closely guarded secret – they are serious about sustainability and are a farm with zero carbon footprint.

The sausagemeat comes from by local company, Speldhurst. Free from preservatives and artificial flavouring, the pork is sourced from the UK (and occasionally Ireland) to Red Tractor standards.

The bacon is made from free-range, higher-welfare pork from Dingley Dell Farm. It’s cured, hung, smoked for over eight hours over beechwood chips, then steeped in beer and black treacle for up to two weeks. The best bacon in the world? We think so.

DEFROST BEFORE COOKING

Defrost Instructions:

Remove from packaging, place in dish and cover. Defrost for at least 72 hours in the fridge or 12 hours at room temperature. Ensure it is fully defrosted before cooking. Once defrosted, keep your turkey in the fridge.

*NOT SUITABLE FOR MICROWAVES*
OVEN COOK

Oven:

Preheat oven. Place in a roasting tin, cover with foil and cook in middle of oven for 120 mins. Remove the foil and continue to cook for further 25 mins to allow the bacon to crisp. Before removing from the oven, use a fork or skewer to pierce the centre of the meat, the juices need to run clear with no hint of redness.

Oven Settings

Fan 170°C, Electric 190°C, Gas Mark 5.
145 mins
Ensure piping hot and allow to rest for 30 mins before carving. These cooking instructions are only a guide. Your oven may have a personality of its own (or a different power setting), adjust accordingly. If cooking as part of a COOK stress-free Christmas lunch see the timings at www.cookfood.net/timings.

Extra Warnings:

Please be aware that the bacon causes the turkey to turn pink, this is normal and does not mean that the turkey is not cooked. Although every care has been taken to remove all bones, some may remain.

Please Note: The details above are correct as of 26 November 2020 but as we are constantly improving our recipes it is essential to check the label on the packaging.
