Turkey for Easter?

We're going to have something different. Goose is too fatty, pheasant is too gamey. Might try ostrich.

Duck, try duck.

Can't beat a good steak IMHO

Maybe the Ostrich comes from Bernard Matthews farm too. I'm with A194 on this, or try a leg of lamb (Welsh of course).

"Might try ostrich."

Blimey, you must have a big oven:-)

By the way a farmer has experimented crossing a turkey with a spider, so everyone gets a leg! When asked what they tasted like he said, I don't know we can't catch them.

Can you really believe what you read in newspapers nowadays. Over the weekend and yesterday, there appears to be conclusion that no further actions will be taken, due to insufficient evidence. The report in the above link seems to suggest that investigations are still ongoing, and further action is possible.

The newspapers also had full page spreads of a very sprightly 'younger' Bernard Matthews in a recent advertising campaign. This also as brought a lot of criticism from many sectors.

Go Duck, but you do need a rack to cook them on as unless you can get a barberry duck they're fatty.
Alternatively try getting free range turkey or chicken rather than those poor sodding things locked in a shed all day.

You keep the fat - great for roasting spuds in, among'st other things.

Because of the short cooking time of a Duck. Cut your potatoes (Spuds) smallish and boil them for about 15 - 20 minutes before putting them into the pan with the duck. Then roast as usual

Leg of local lamb with fresh mint sauce (made from mint overwintered in the greenhouse and forced into growth), Jersey Royal spuds, nice green cabbage and REAL gravy made from the scrapings in the roasting tin.

I'm not a pudding eater but a ginger and golden syrup sponge with English custard would be nice for afters.

A nice thin French style onion soup to start with.

(I'm entertaining the family this weekend).

Edstowe. Sounds great but I'm not coming unless I can have apple pie and cream....
