Fiery cooks! Now that you’ve decided to roast the bird in the oven, it’s time to start using it for everything else. Start collecting your aging bread for the dressing and make sure it’s nice and dry. In addition to the turkey and dressing, I blanch my Brussels sprouts, season them and then roast ‘em in our Toscana wfo, too.  The recipe for cooking a turkey in a wood fired oven is in the Forno Bravo Community Cookbook here.  You can watch the first part of this two-part video demonstration, “Cooking a Turkey in a Wood Fired Oven“, on the Forno Bravo Community Cookbook YouTube channel.

Buon appetite e ci sentiamo presto!
