  • Wild Mushroom and Leek Sourdough Stuffing

    by

    This vegetarian friendly stuffing is one of the surprising highlights of a more traditional meat laden menu. It is bursting with “meaty” umami flavor courtesy of the blend of wild mushrooms used. Dry vermouth, a fortified wine flavored with various herbs and botanicals, adds an additional layer of subtle sophisticated flavor. Dried mushrooms can be found at upscale grocery stores or ethnic markets like Italian or Asian groceries. Make note that the sourdough bread needs to be cut into cubes 24 hours ahead of time to dry out. If you forget, don’t worry, you can just toast the bread cubes in the oven at 375°F for 10 to 15 minutes or until they are dry and just starting to turn golden brown.

  • Roast Turkey with Herbes de Provence and White Wine Gravy

    by

    One of the biggest dilemmas in roasting a turkey is how to keep the breast from becoming dry and overcooked while making sure the thigh and legs are fully cooked. Brining ensures overall juicy meat in general while the technique of first roasting the bird upside down allows for the dark meat to get a jumpstart on the cooking. It also means the breast self-baste in the beginning with the natural juices running down over it. Turning the turkey right side up halfway through the roasting ensures a beautiful browned skin bird, ready for presentation. Don’t worry if the breast has indentations from the roasting rack once you flip it over. As it continues to cook, it will plump up.
