recipe

Turkey breast rolled with fresh herbs, orange zest, and spices is covered with pancetta and then roasted. It's sliced and offered atop a dressing made with farro (a whole grain), oranges, black grapes, and pine nuts. White-wine sauce accompanies the ensemble.

recipe

A leftover turkey carcass is used to make a delicious broth, which is then used to make a warming soup akin to the Italian favorite tortellini en brodo. The recipe is written for 1 pound of carcass -- for each additional pound, double the aromatic ingredients (carrot, onion, celery, parsley and peppercorns; do not add more bay leaves) used to enhance the broth's flavor. For more tortellini, you will need about 8 cups turkey broth for every 9 ounces of tortellini.
