Beef Wellington is a rich, flavourful dish that is perfect as a Christmas recipe

1. Roast Turkey

Without any doubt, turkey is the uncontested all-time classic meat for a traditional Christmas dinner and its place as the centrepiece of our dining tables has been cemented for hundreds of years. When preparing a turkey dinner, keeping the turkey meat juicy and golden is perceived to be the hardest part. However, it is easier than you think!

From cooking a simple Turkey Breast to a Stuffed Turkey Breast or a full-blown Whole Turkey. Make sure you cover the dish with foil to keep in all the moisture in the Christmas Turkey and to maintain the turkey’s natural flavours.

Sprinkle the Turkey with a pinch of Salt to give your dinner a unique added crisp!

2. Roast Goose

Everyone’s familiar with the good old Christmas turkey, but why not go for a deliciously different alternative like a Whole Goose. Goose is a bird of a different feather whose presence as a festive meal has has historically pre-dated Turkey and we think is worthy of earning a spot on your dinner table this Christmas.

Goose meat is not only very rich in taste, but it is also a healthier alternative providing a great ratio of Omega 3 and Omega 6 and a great source of protein.

7. Roast Duck

As a juicy bird with a crispy skin, Duck is ideal for festive occasions.

The reputation of Duck meat as an exquisite poultry has been gathering quite a reputation lately. However, it remains one of those dishes which most people shy-away from when it comes to cooking.

Retaining its place as an extremely popular delicacy in Nordic countries like Denmark, Duck is one of the most popular meats for Christmas Dinners. A Whole Duck can gracefully endow your dinner table and can be stuffed in a similar manner as a Turkey, yet offer an amazingly succulent meat with a crispier texture, especially when slow roasted.

The incredibly tasting duck fat which melts away from the meat when roasted proves to be an excellent seasoning for roast potatoes, promising a unique taste which will blow you away!
