Turkey recipe book launched

Turkey loving celebrity chefs and sporting heroes have joined forces to help boost the meat's popularity.

Working with Quality British Turkey, a number of well known faces have come up with their favourite recipes for the Little Book of Great British Turkey Recipes, launched this week.

The book, published by Simon and Schuster UK, contains 21 recipes ranging from TV sports presenter Gaby Logan's take on lasagne to rugby hero Martin Johnson's favourite chilli burgers.

Celebrity chef Phil Vickery, who has written the foreword and some recipes of his own, said: "British turkey is tasty, versatile, healthy - something all the family can enjoy. As a family man myself, I firmly believe in giving my children food they relish as well as food that is good for them."

The recipe book is available, priced £4.99, from www.britishturkey.co.uk. A percentage of sales will be going to the SPARKS charity.
