Chef Todd Gray’s Turkey TIPS:
Chef Todd Gray of Equinox – Washington D.C.

Gray’s first tip for Thanksgiving service was: “Don’t do it!” But if you must, he recommends taking the following approach for a moist, easy-to-manage bird:
- Separate the breasts and legs and soak them in a buttermilk broth.
- Stuff the legs with sausage and chestnuts.
- Sous vide both the legs and the breasts.
- Pan roast to brown the bird then finish in the oven.
