Turkey must be the food with the biggest flavour gap, at least in the UK. Done properly, it's gorgeous - far better than chicken. But 95% of the time it's cooked terribly or comes in those disgusting processed slices.

I keep seeing and hearing advice to soak the turkey for hours (or even a day) in advance, in brine, or in a brine mix with other things like herbs and fruit added. Apparently the salt water breaks down proteins and stuff, and gets into the bird, which means it stays much moister and is more flavoursome. I need to find a good recipe for a soak more interesting than just brine if I'm going to try it.

there's a brand of chocolatey mints out at the moment called 'Mingles'. yes, 'Mingles'. someone at the agency actually had the bravado to walk into the boardroom and suggest calling them 'Mingles' - and miraculously kept their job.

There's a Chinese restaurant in Acton called Ming's. Cracks me up every time.

Free range turkey on order.

Has anyone tried that brine soaking business, and if so, does it work?

I've heard very positive personal testimony to brine soaking, but have never tried it myself.

The missus and I brined our heritage turkey for Thanksgiving. Best one we've had. If you go to epicurious.com and search for brines, we used the one by Aidell.

Will we be soaked in brine first?

Don't bring religion into a Christmas thread please, it's utterly distasteful.

PG; Did you know that New Malden has the largest Korean community in the UK?
