Roasted Turkey @ Victoria Station

Saturday, December 26, 2009

Turkeys are traditionally eaten as the main course of Christmas feasts in much of the world (stuffed turkey), as well as Thanksgiving in the United States and Canada, though this tradition has its origins in modern times, rather than colonial as is often supposed. Before the 20th century, pork ribs were the most common food on the holiday, as the animals were usually slaughtered in November. Turkeys were once so abundant in the wild that they were eaten throughout the year, the food considered commonplace, whereas pork ribs were rarely available outside of the Thanksgiving-New Year season. It has also displaced, to a certain extent, the traditional Christmas roast goose or beef of the United Kingdom and Europe. While eating turkey was once mainly restricted to special occasions such as these, turkey is now eaten year-round and forms a regular part of many diets
Turkeys are usually baked or roasted in an oven for several hours, often while the cook prepares the remainder of the meal. Here, the Victoria Station’s turkey is brined before roasting to enhance flavor and moisture content. This is necessary because the dark meat requires a higher temperature to denature all of the myoglobin pigment than the white meat (very low in myoglobin), so that fully cooking the dark meat tends to dry out the breast. Brining makes it possible to fully cook the dark meat without drying the breast meat. Turkeys are sometimes decorated with turkey frills prior to serving.
Victoria Station package turkey comes with chickens sausages, parsley potatoes, fresh garden salad, roast sauce, cranberry sauce and French dressing. The turkey is tasty and roasted quite well (roasted in traditional way). Meat is tender and not dry. Overall is good.
