Turkey is one of a very few ingredients that has so far avoided the stamp of disapproval in our scary, low fat, low salt, your-days-are-numbered, culinary lives. I love turkey. Two of my most important meals of the year have turkey as their main component.
Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners have always been favorites and they have always been an homage to this science fiction-ish, but delicious, bird. The problem with turkey is that not everyone prepares it particularly well.
