Reviewed Perfect Roast Turkey
"Amazing. I hate turkey as a rule, and I made this for my first Thanksgiving dinner. I brined it first with some cut up lemons, oranges, salt, and brown sugar (Emeril's recipe for brined turkey). I then followed Ina's instructions exactly. I even overcooked the turkey a bit ... the breast was 180*F when I pulled it out (oops) and it was still so moist. I couldn't believe it ... I actually LIKED turkey! I will always make this exact recipe from now on. Thanks!
"I prepared this recipe exactly as written. Everyone at my Thanksgiving table liked it except for me. I was hoping to really taste the pancetta, but its rich flavor was lost in the strong flavor of the parmesan and the sweetness of the chestnuts. Overall, I felt that the stuffing was sweet instead of savory, and I suppose I just prefer a savory saltier stuffing instead of a sweet stuffing. I did enjoy the texture that the chestnuts contributed (whole, peeled, cooked chestnuts at trader joe's were rather affordable) so I would not recommend leaving them out or replacing them with mushrooms. I do not plan on making this again, at least not as written. Plus, it was quite expensive to make, so I think I'll stick with something a little more economical next time. Thanks anyway, Giada.
