Neven Maguire: Foolproof Roast Turkey with Streaky Bacon

‘This is the easiest way to roast a turkey’ says Neven Maguire in his new book Neven Maguire’s Perfect Irish Christmas ‘and fortunately, for many people it’s also the best. Forget about having the time to brine it or trying to turn it over while it cooks – this method is absolutely foolproof.’

Cheat’s Cranberry Sauce

This is an old recipe from a BBC Good Food magazine which we cut out and kept. It’s foolproof. (We’ve adapted it slightly.) Make it up to a week ahead and keep it in the fridge in jars or in a bowl covered with cling film.

FOOD FEATURES Roast Garlic with Balsamic and Thyme Oil

Balsamic Roast Garlic with Thyme

We ate brunch at the Two Pups café in Francis Street in Dublin and had what they called ‘black garlic’ with a poached egg salad. We asked them how to make it so this is an approximation of the chef’s recipe (to whom we owe a debt of thanks). Squeeze the bulbs and eat it on bread, add it to salad dressings and use to garnish and roast meat or vegetable and to accompany poached eggs on toasted sourdough bread with rocket leaves.
