Hugh Fernley-Whittingstall - how to roast a turkey

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
Turkey

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