Treat the family to a turkey that's a true celebration of festive flavours, from the nutty stuffing and juicy meat to the splash of Christmas spirit in the gravy.
Although its origins are shady (some sources even contend that it originated in America), chicken with 40 cloves of garlic is generally thought to hail from that sunny, southern region of France Dumas spoke of so fondly. You will need about 3 bulbs of garlic to get 40 cloves. Don't be put off by the quantity when roasted, the garlic develops a creamy texture and sweet flavour.
A buttery hazelnut and sage sauce takes this turkey recipe up a notch.
