This new twist on the traditional meal is expected to WOW diners and critics this festive season.

The new recipe see a boned turkey breast stuffed with a pork farce and packed full of flavour, with the addition of fennel, chilli, black pepper, chestnuts, sage, parsley, olive oil and white wine. The Turkey breast is then wrapped in bacon and the glazed in a sweet spiced honey and five spice glaze before being slow cooked. The stuffing for this dish is packed with amazing flavour and really moist which helps to stop the turkey meat drying out.

This special turkey will be available at the restaurant for a ‘special’ lunch or dinner at Bistro Vadouvan throughout December. The turkey with a twist is also offered as a main option for set Christmas Party menus, available for groups of 8 and over.
