Donal Skehan's Traditional Family Christmas Dinner

I prefer to use a free-range or organic bird for this special occasion. If you want to carve it at the table, fill the neck cavity with a bunch of fresh herbs and arrange the roast potatoes around it, draping them with redcurrant sprigs for that festive touch. A great tip for testing if your turkey is ready is to invest in a meat thermometer. They are invaluable at this time of year to ensure the perfectly cooked bird.
