I know that Christmas meal varies in different parts of the world with regional cuisines and local traditions. For example, In countries without a lengthy Christian tradition, such as Japan, the Christmas meal may be more heavily influenced by popular culture, while British Christmas meal features classic roast Turkey.
Classic Roast Turkey is a traditional Christmas dish for Christmas party in many western countries. And it’s easy to cook. Once I was lucky to taste it at a Christmas party organized by one of my foreign friends, Jane. And she shared the receipt with me. All a turkey needs are a generous rubdown with plenty of salt and sugar and an overnight rest in the fridge to allow that seasoning to really penetrate—whether you’re roasting it whole. After that, we can just cook it with oven for about 1 hour.
Turkeys were brought into Britain many years ago, and they remain hugely popular on Christmas dinner tables in western countries because Christmas is a family time and turkeys are in family size. In addition, one of the reasons that turkey became more common was that farmers thought it would be much more cost-effective to keep chickens and cows alive so that they could produce eggs and milk.
