Roast turkey breast with bacon-cranberry chutney The chutney is a Thanksgiving mash-up, with bacon, apples and cranberries that are roasted in the turkey pan for extra flavour.

Spiced parsnip & sweet potato mash Allspice and thyme enhance this vegetable mash, transforming it into an aromatic, mouth-watering side dish.

Sugar snap pea & water chestnut sauté Bright and tender-crisp, this veggie sauté gets a boost with a hint of nutty, browned butter.
