And once again we are ready for Thanksgiving and for the monthly appointment with World on a Plate. This month we are playing with Turkey. We thought we will give you an idea of how Turkey can be cooked around the world and maybe you will get inspired for your Thanksgiving meal.
Also, this month we have to welcome two new members: Kate from the Diethood and Ramona from Curry and Comfort. Kate will represent Macedonia, while Ramona will tell us about Sri Lanka. I cannot wait to see what they come up with!
I decided to go for an Italian classic: turkey roast. Roasts are a very common Sunday lunch meal in Italy. They are traditionally made with veal but turkey is quickly becoming a popular choice. The meat is rolled up with pancetta and seasoned with rosemary and/or sage and then cooked in the oven with a bit of wine. One of the best part of roasts, is that they are usually served with potatoes cooked in the drippings of the roast. The potatoes soak up all that goodness and become irresistible.
A good roast is tender, juicy and comes with fork tender potatoes. And this turkey roast had all the needed characteristics. Give it a try! It could make for the perfect Thanksgiving Turkey for a small gathering.
And don’t forget to check out what my fellow blogger make with Turkey around the world! You might find an interesting recipe for you thanksgiving menu!
World on a Plate is a blogging cultural exchange. On the last Sunday of the month, bloggers from all over the world get together to interpret a food through the lens of their home country cooking. Each blogger will produce a wonderful dish featuring the food chosen that is typical of her/his home country and will tell us a bit about the dish.
