Win your Christmas Lunch with Donald Russell:
Does organising christmas lunch leave you in despair? All those traditional bits and pieces you know you need to provide to stop a family war breaking out, which turkey to pick to keep everyone happy from your ethical daughter who only wants free range meat to your foodie partner who is expecting you to know the difference between Slate Blue, Bourbon, White and Bronze (yes REALLY) and your picky Aunt who will only eat the white meat.
The lovely folk at Donald Russell have produced an interactive Christmas Turkey Guide with absolutely everything you need to know about buying, preparing and cooking your turkey. They’ve even included a step by step ‘how to carve’ guide as well as a useful video. Well worth checking out before Christmas Day, it tells you everything you need to know.
Then of course there’s the cost. No one wants to be dubbed Scrooge at Christmas, but once you’ve bought the pressies, decorations, cards and chocolates if you are anything like me you’ll have blown your budget.
So I’m delighted that Donald Russell have agreed to give ONE lucky London-Unattached reader their Christmas Lunch for free. The prize is a Christmas treat of a small turkey crown (which should feed 4-5 hungry adults) and those very necessary pigs in blankets. All Donald Russell meat is high quality and all their turkey is free range. And the crown is an easy to carve cut which gives you all the white meat from the bird, but leaves in the breast bone to make sure the meat doesn’t dry out when you are cooking it and to add that extra bit of flavour.
I’m not running this giveaway for long because obviously you’ll want your turkey delivered by Christmas Day. And, you’ll need to check on the 16th or 17th, when I’ll have drawn the winner because you’ll only get 48 hours to let me know your name and address details.
All you need to do is watch through the interactive Christmas Turkey Guide and tell me what you think is the most useful bit of information there. Is it something you hadn’t realised before? Is it something that you need a new failsafe method for? Or is it something your other half normally gets wrong where you can now provide a bit of ‘coaching’.
