The thought of having your friends and family huddled around a Christmas table, recalling old stories, sharing a glass of wine and a plump golden turkey proudly positioned at the centre of the table, is a thought that could warm a snowman!
You often hear that “Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a turkey”, but when did a turkey become a Christmas day staple? Well, some believe that we have King Henry VII to thank for this when he once feasted on a turkey one Christmas, shortly after the birds were introduced to the country from The Americas.
Prior to this a festive goose was the bird of choice at Christmas and it is with this thought in mind alongside one of our favourite Christmas songs. “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree” by Brenda Lee, when she famously sings the line “In the new old-fashioned way”, that we thought we would share a new dish for you to try this Christmas from Bruce, Head Chef at Audley Clevedon, his delicious classic roast goose recipe!
