Leah Chase's Roasted Turkey

Leah Chase's Roasted Turkey

Leah Chase, the longtime chef at Dooky Chase, prepares a roasted turkey with astonishingly tender and juicy breast meat. The secret, we learned, is to seal the bird in an oversize packet of aluminum foil, which locks in the moisture. To brown the bird, she unwraps it and roasts it at a high temperature for the last 30 minutes. See the recipe for Leah Chase's Roasted Turkey »Landon Nordeman
