– Allow the bird to come to room temperature for two hours before roasting

– Don’t be tempted to cover with foil as this will steam it rather than roast it

– To turn the bird over during cooking, wear thick rubber gloves to protect your hands and work quickly!

– Allow the turkey to rest for at 30-60 minutes before carving, as this will allow all of the juices to return to the meat. Resting it upside down also really helps!
