Everyone’s familiar with the good old Christmas turkey, but who says you have to stick with tradition this year? There are plenty of other birds worthy of a spot on your festive table, as the gorgeous recipes in this month’s Jamie magazine prove.

Turkeys have been eaten in Britain since the 16th Century, and Henry VIII is widely believed to have been the first monarch to have eaten one with his Christmas dinner, but the bird’s place on the festive menu was truly cemented during Victorian times. They’re now a firm fixture on the Christmas table, with more than 10 million sold in the UK last Christmas alone. But that doesn’t mean you have to do the same, why not give these other brilliant birds a chance this year?

GOOSE

As it reaches its prime by winter, goose was traditionally the bird of choice before the more affordable turkey had a surge in popularity. It’s a bird worth splashing out on, though, with insanely good crispy skin and lots of flavoursome fat. Tim Wilson, founder of London’s renowned Ginger Pig butcher, agrees. “It’s a much darker meat, with a richer flavour,” he says, “and the fat naturally bastes the bird, making it virtually impossible for the meat to dry out.” For the perfect goose, look for a bird weighing between 4.5 and 7kg, and be sure to wrap the less-meaty legs in foil for the last 30 minutes of cooking to stop them drying out.

Goose makes a spectacular turkey alternative

Use all of that delicious fat to make the best-ever gravy and irresistible roast potatoes. If you have any left over, store it in a jar. “It will last in the fridge for a couple of months,” says Tim. Use it for mind-blowing roast veggies, or stir it into a cassoulet to provide an instant hit of flavour.

This goose recipe has a beautifully warm spice mix that gives it a really Christmassy feel. Served with a rich port gravy, it’s sure to guarantee clean plates all ’round.

This method is reliable and will give you an experience you definitely won’t forget, whether it’s the first meal from it, or using up the lovely leftovers it gives you (if there are any!)

DUCK

Another bird with enough flavoursome fat to make epic roast potatoes, duck has a rich flavour that marries incredibly well with festive spices – think cinnamon, clementine and cloves. When slow-roasted, the meat will fall off the bone and you can create a platter for everyone to tuck into – bash some pomegranate seeds over the top for a special seasonal twist. Just make sure you rest it thoroughly, advises Tim. “Always for at least 15 minutes, but the longer the better,” he says. “This allows the juices in the meat, which naturally travel to the middle during cooking, to disperse evenly through the whole joint, making the meat super-tender.”

Jamie’s traditional roast duck with a Christmas twist

Try a traditional roast duck stuffed with warming Christmas spices and rub the marinade over the skin the day before, if you can, for an extra flavoursome result.

This is a massive Oliver family favourite – everyone loves building their own pancakes and roast duck is such a treat.

This crispy roast duck is a fuss-free alternative to the traditional Sunday roast. Flavoured with bay, clementine and five-spice, it’s a festive favourite.

Serve with spuds and gravy for a festive feast.

CHICKEN

Thought roast chicken was just for standard Sundays? Paying attention to sourcing means you can choose a chook that’s worthy of the big event, too. Tim advises going for a free-range bird, that’s “grown slowly, which means it’ll have a better breast-to-leg-meat ratio than intensively reared commercial birds.”

This amazing recipe proves roast chicken isn’t just for Sundays

Head to your local butcher to ask about what’s available near you – you’ll often find bigger, 4kg birds at this time of year including the classic large French chicken, poulet de bresse. Stuffed with fresh herbs, with porcini and pancetta butter smeared under the skin, the ultimate roast chicken from this month’s Jamie magazine is no ordinary roast dinner. And when you’re done with the bird, be sure not to throw anything away. “Keep the bones or carcass of the roast along with the vegetable peelings, and make stock,” suggests Tim. “And if you have any leftover meat, try it in a risotto or Vietnamese- style noodle broth.”

Chicken with spicy sausage is always a winner, and makes for a brilliant Spanish spin on a roast.

Lemon and loads of fragrant fresh herbs make this roast chicken a little bit special.

OK, so not everyone needs a great big joint for Christmas. This roast chicken with a rich stuffing is really special if you’re having a romantic dinner. (Plus you get great leftovers.)

Cooking a whole chicken in a pastry crust will give you the most incredible flavour and beautifully tender results. It also looks brilliantly bonkers, so it makes the most fantastic centrepiece for a meal to impress your friends and family. Simply crack off and discard the crust, revealing that super-juicy bird hidden inside. Heaven.

A super-reliable roast chicken recipe to give you juicy meat and crispy skin, every time.

BEEF

Give beef a chance this Christmas. It’s a great option because you can cook it so it’s juicy and rare, or go low and slow for pull-apart tender meat. Take a look at some of our favourite recipes below:

This simple method for roast topside of beef ensures that it’s super succulent every time.

Take your roast beef to the next level with a hit of sweet garlic and crispy rosemary – simple, but incredible!

Beef Wellington celebrates the luxurious and very tender fillet of beef and is one of those ultimate blowout dishes that hits the right spot several times in one meal. When you’ve made this once, you’ll get a sense of how you can perfect it in your oven and make it work for parties and special occasions; once prepared it’s super-easy to cook and serve.

VENISON

Venison is meat from deer, and has a beautiful deep flavour. As Jamie says: “It’s delicious, it’s full of flavour and it’s nutritious!” Wild venison is a brilliantly sustainable source of meat but we rarely see it on shop shelves. Meanwhile, eating more wild venison would also help farmers who are managing the UK’s booming deer population.

This is a phenomenally delicious way to roast venison, and the method is foolproof, too. Protected by the fatty, crispy prosciutto as it cooks, then served blushing with this outrageously good, silky sauce, it’s hard to beat.

If you’ve never tasted wild venison you’re in for a real treat. Not only is it leaner than beef, but it’s a great source of zinc and iron, too. This fancy, flavour-packed Wellington (as seen on Friday Night Feast) has all the makings of a show-stopping feast. Next-level deliciousness.

HAM

Thinking of trading turkey for an alternative festive centrepiece? Deliciously sweet and salty roast ham could be the showstopper you’re looking for. A good roast ham is a real treat for Christmas, and it’s great for feeding a crowd, too. It’s super-easy to achieve a crispy, golden glaze and juicy, succulent meat. Plus, you’ll have awesome leftovers to use in the days that follow.

WHICH HAM TO BUY?

The first step to great roast ham is good buying. As always, we recommend going for higher-welfare meat – it really is the secret to making sure your ham is amazing. It’s a good idea to order from your butcher in advance, as large cuts are in demand around Christmas.

Pretty much any part of a pig can be cured to make ham, but the most common cuts you’ll find are the shoulder and leg. You can buy hams on or off the bone – smaller hams tend to be boned, while a ham with the bone still in will usually be bigger. Look for something with welfare credentials, ideally a named breed or from a small farm, and reared with access to the outdoors. This all adds up to a great-tasting ham.

This sweet and spicy glazed ham is seriously addictive. Any leftovers make brilliant cold cuts.

VEG

Vegetarian options for Christmas Day can sometimes seem like a bit of an afterthought, but these unbelievable recipes are all total showstoppers. Whether you’re a seasoned vegetarian looking for fresh inspiration, or you’re after some new ideas to feed veggie guests, we’ve got loads of lovely recipes to keep things exciting this Christmas.

This recipe well and truly cracks the nut roast. It’s so packed full of flavour that even those turkey lovers will be tucking in at Christmas!

Trust me, vegetarians at the Christmas table will love you for this amazing treat – it’s a cracker!

The brash, punchy flavours of Persian cooking lend themselves perfectly to veggie-based dishes – and to Christmas.

Nut roast is the vegetarian’s turkey; some crave something different but for others it’s not Christmas without one. This one is different: it has a mushroom risotto base and sticky cranberries on top, a bit like a savoury upside-down cake.

VEGAN

Being vegan at Christmas doesn’t have to be a head scratcher. There are heaps of alternatives to classic Christmas recipes, as well as exciting new treats to keep things fresh during the festive season. We’ve put together a smashing vegan feast to get your tastebuds tingling.

For a vegan alternative to a classic roast, this spiced, roasted cauliflower is just the ticket!

Being vegan doesn’t mean compromising on flavour, as this recipe proves. Tofu gives this nut roast a creaminess that makes it seem decadent. Crunchy and full of spices, everyone will be tucking in. You can make individual portions or 1 big tart.

This tart is perfect for Christmas – make it the day before and heat through once dinner’s nearly ready. If you can’t get wild mushrooms, use more chestnut ones.

Based on a beloved old recipe of mine, this method really takes advantage of stuffing and slow-roasting the sweet, versatile squash. You get wonderful flavours exchanging in the centre, great textures, and the slices look amazing.

PORK

When buying pork, remember to always buy free-range or organic whenever possible. This means the animal has led a happy and healthy life, often born and reared outdoors in small numbers where it can forage and exercise as nature intended, rather than being kept in confinement. If you’re looking to trade up, look for higher-welfare certifications, such as RSPCA Approved or Certified Humane as a minimum.

Cooking the cut this way keeps it beautifully juicy and soft – the way a pork pot roast should be

With a gorgeous sage & pine nut stuffing.

This recipe for pork is great. You can serve it as a conventional roast, or let it cool and either serve it as part of a buffet, or in sandwiches as they do in Italy. On my first trip there we stopped at a caravan by the side of the road where we had lovely big porchetta (pork sandwiches) filled with salad leaves, mustard and some very bready salsa verde.

This next-level Sunday roast is well worth the wait – just try to resist that perfect crackling.

Gennaro makes a mean porchetta – and trust me, if you like roast pork chops, you’ll devour this.


Festive Recipes To Get You In The Spirit (Without A Turkey In Sight)

Is it even worth acknowledging how weird and different the festive season is going to be this year? Or are we beyond stating the obvious now? Because I know it, you know it, and at this point we’re trying to find comfort that doesn’t break the tier rules or endanger our loved ones.

Nothing elicits that sense of comforting festivity (other than maybe ) like food. There are so many flavours, scents and textures that are intimately intertwined with the season: warming spices and root vegetables, starchy stuffings and honey glazes, chocolate, peppermint, orange and cinnamon.

These food memories can be personal too. I have a very specific sense memory linked to orange Matchmakers which always reminds me of childhood. I only need to see the box or catch a whiff of that synthetic citrus to be thrown back to a particular Christmas at home, aged 7, when I ate too much chocolate before mass and fainted on the altar (true story).

Mountains of work can go into Christmas food — the brining, the peeling, the baking, the steaming — and that’s often part of the fun. But when our family units are fractured or compartmentalised thanks to a pesky pandemic, it’s harder to work up the energy for all the faff. Not impossible, but way harder.

And so, as a sort of middle ground between huge amounts of food-related labour and nothing at all, we offer you festive recipes which capture the spirit of the season without taking a million years to prepare. These are meals suitable for weeknights or snacking or having a socially distant cocktail, so you can still eat, drink and be merry without pushing the boat out too far.

It’s become a cliché to talk about how maligned the humble sprout can be — when overcooked and pushed into mush territory they are distinctly unpleasant but when cooked correctly (as they are here) they can be an absolute wonder. This is a perfect weeknight dinner that gives you an excuse to pop open a bottle of white wine. Who could ask for anything more?

A gingerbread cookie can come in many forms. It could be person shaped, tree shaped, built into a house or even animated. This grown-up version is particularly good: adding cardamom to the dough and a zippy lemon glaze produces something a touch more sophisticated than your run-of-the-mill gingerbread, but just as moreish.

Honestly, this list wouldn’t be complete without a range of festive drinks, both alcoholic and non. This fizzy cranberry bourbon concoction is as simple as it is satisfying. Perfect for your Zoom Christmas parties.

Mulled wine is a seasonal classic and this recipe hits every note you want — it’s spiced and warming, will fill your kitchen with a deliciously cosy aroma and is dead easy. The brandy gives it a little extra kick if you’re taking it on a particularly chilly walk.

Root vegetables like parsnips, carrots and celeriac have their moment in the sun come winter. Much like the sprout they just need a little TLC in the oven to make them into something really special. This winter salad is a welcome (but filling) break from the other traditional eats of the season, while still ticking every festive box.

My co-worker sent me the link to this recipe, saying “These are the don”. Can’t ask for a better endorsement for a peppermint chocolate cookie than that!

I’m not saying you should have a meal of just roast potatoes to feel Christmassy but I’m also not not saying that. And when they’re hitting every note like Mariah Carey does each December, I’d challenge you to turn these roasties down.

This is like the other fizzy cocktail in this list’s fancier cousin — when she arrives, she’s really trying to impress. And impress! She! Does!

And finally, you’ve probably seen these hot chocolate bombs everywhere on Instagram and TikTok but they are surprisingly easy to make — you just need the right mould and a teensy bit of patience.

4 Vegan Alternatives to Turkey This Festive Season

If it feels like turkeys are the main attraction at all the festive season meals you&rsquore attending, it doesn&rsquot have to be the case at your Christmas party.

Sure, this might ruffle the feathers of some of your meat-loving friends, but once they see the delicious vegan alternatives to the bird, they&rsquoll be enjoying themselves with this delicious food you have on offer.

Here are four vegan alternatives to turkey this festive season:

This loaf makes use of a variety of tasty ingredients such as millet, brown rice, lentils, cashews, tomatoes and white bread. It creates a satisfying treat for all your hungry guests. It&rsquos also really easy to make and will bake in the oven for approximately an hour. It might have been called a Thanksgiving loaf but it can definitely work a storm at your Christmas feast this year!

Bring bread to the table but in the form of mouth-watering stuffing that can be used in casserole dishes instead of in the turkey. This recipe makes use of bread cubes, herbs, onion and celery, so it&rsquos a healthy and tasty addition to a variety of meals.

Veggies can be satisfying and delicious, especially if they&rsquore roasted. Potatoes come to the rescue here, offering a filling plate at your Christmas table. Make a delicious sweet potato casserole that has delicious nuts in it to give it crunch! The recipe is also gluten-free, so it&rsquos great if some of your guests are gluten intolerant.

If you really don&rsquot want to miss out on the idea of turkey this festive season, there is always the chance to choose a fake meat one that tastes like the real thing. You can even get faux turkey meat that comes with stuffing included.


Alternatives to Cold Turkey Methods

Statistics have shown that nine out of ten tobacco users started smoking before the age of eighteen. Most adults who started smoking during their teen years would never expect to become addicted. This fact is not known by all smokers or for people who would want to try smoking. Naturally, if a person starts smoking, their lifestyle slowly changes, bringing in smoking as one of their pastimes.

People who smoke cigarettes or any other forms of tobacco does not consciously think about its consequences. They light a cigarette when waking up just to have the nicotine rush. This nicotine-induced rush helps them get rid of drowsiness. This can be habit forming, especially for those people who cannot wake up as fast as others. Smokers also light up a cigarette after eating, since this can eliminate any hunger pangs that they may have or crave. It stops the feeling of hunger, and eventually makes the person feel full. Other people smoke when they are bored. This usually happens when they wait for someone, or when they are on breaks at work or in school, or just to pass the time away. Either way, smoking can change one's lifestyle, but unfortunately for the worse.

For people with family members who smoke, it is best that the family members themselves provide the assistance needed to help the smoker quit this farmful habit. Of course, it would not be an easy task at all. Nicotine is addictive, and people who smoke really crave for that nicotine rush, even if they know its bad for them. One should not make a person quit smoking just like that, for it brings withdrawal symptoms. Uneasiness, restlessness, irritability, and aggressiveness often comes when cigarettes are not around. Tagged as "cold turkey", these people who quickly quit smoking can really behave differently from how they used to when they were still smoking.

In order to help loved ones who smoke, people should talk to their loved ones about the dangers and consequences that smoking can bring. It is important that the person who smoke would want to stop smoking, so that quitting can be a lot easier. Try and purchase self-help books that teach quitting techniques that do not involve "cold turkey" methods. They have guidelines and ways to avoid smoking including such alternatives as eating carrots, and any other nibblets when they feel the need to smoke. Think of having a smoke-free home rule where no one is allowed to smoke inside the house. This can help the smoker slowly realize that smoking is just a waste of time and effort, and that there are other things to do besides smoking. Getting them to attend therapy sessions could also help. But at the end of the day, only the smoker can decide to stop smoking since it is the smoker's will to quit and concern for his health that will lead to such a life-saving decision.


Tinker with tradition: tempting turkey alternatives

When many of us think of Christmas Day, roast turkey is one of the first things to spring to mind. But maybe you're not enamoured by the idea of another turkey dinner, or you fancy being brave and branching out to try something original this year.

And there are plenty of alternatives to turkey that might just tempt you away from tradition.

Birds such as poussin and cockerel make for a fantastically flavoursome meal with a difference, and may well make the crowning ingredient of your festive feast.

A smaller bird or cut of meat means less time spent in the kitchen and less leftovers &ndash no turkey curry party required!

And by sticking to conventional roasting methods, you can try something different while keeping in touch with tradition.

They still make for impressive centrepieces &ndash and give you more time to enjoy the festivities. These recipes &ndash including poussin, cockerel and a three bird roast &ndash will not require an early start or provoke any basting-related panic.

And what would Christmas lunch be without the little extras? Alternative meats still work well with quintessential trimmings such as pigs in blankets, crunchy roast potatoes and honey roasted parsnips.

If there are only a couple of you on Christmas day, poussin could be just the ticket. Also known as spring chickens, they are 4-6 weeks old and weigh between 400-500g, equating to the perfect single serving. They have a mild flavour which makes them perfect for rich stuffing or sauce to add flavour.

Better known for unwelcome early morning wake-up calls than their place on the Christmas lunch table, cockerel can make a tasty option. Larger than a chicken but smaller than a turkey, they do not often feature on menus and tend to be produced on a small scale. Their meat is similar to a hen's and more succulent than that of a turkey.

A three bird roast makes for a stunning centrepiece and caters to lots of different tastes and so have become increasingly popular in recent years. They can range from modest three bird crowns to impressive creations combining five meats as well as stuffing.

If you are feeling experimental this Christmas, why not consider jazzing up your standard stuffing and vegetable dishes too. Try a splash of red wine in your gravy, venison chipolatas or steaming your sprouts in sage and chestnut butter.
