Reposting a recipe originally published on December 20, 2010. I know that some of you are already thinking about Christmas and New Year. And for those who celebrate Thanksgiving but prefer the more succulent duck to the bland turkey, here is an idea.
We’re hosting a family party between Christmas and New Year, we’re going potluck, and Speedy and I agreed that our contribution would be a whole roast turkey. We’ll serve it a la pritchon this time. Along with the turkey, we’ll have tortillas, cucumber, leeks and a variety of sauces. The turkey will be sliced and each guest can wrap his turkey slice with a tortilla halve and garnish it with cucumber and leeks and his chosen sauce.
To make sure that everything will turn out perfectly for the party, we had a little dry run last Saturday. I roasted a duck which is the right size for a family of four, and served it exactly the way I intend to serve the turkey at the party. »
