If you’re like many Canadians, festive occasions like Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter* mean good times with family and friends, with a hearty, tasty meal at the cornerstone of the celebration.  There’s nothing like the memories that these feasts generate, especially when we’ve created a magnificent spread enjoyed by all!

Since turkey is nutritious, delicious and adaptable to a myriad of different cuisines, it’s almost a crime to save it only for festive feasts. Cuts like turkey breast, ground turkey, scaloppini, thighs, drums and wings are available on a regular basis in stores across Canada. And here’s a hint: if you don’t see what you want at your favourite store or butcher’s, just ask them for it! They’ll be happy to bring it in for you.
