How To Carve A Turkey

The turkey can certainly be carved table side but realistically, you may want to account for a little additional time in the kitchen to carve the bird on a cutting board using the proper tools & essentials. Sharpen knives well in advance so they are ready to use. A quality carving knife is ideal, however a good chef knife will accomplish the task as well. Arrange the turkey slices on a platter & use an assortment for fresh herbs that were used to prepare the recipe for an eye-catching presentation.
