Sasha’s Fine Foods
Throw a Thanksgiving party at home with free-range, slow-growing whole turkeys from KellyBronze, exclusively available at Sasha’s Fine Foods. Raised in the Kelly farm in Essex, England, the award-winning turkeys are fed a natural diet and are free to roam in the woodlands and pastures. The birds are reared with exceptional care and passion, and are grown to full maturity. They’re twice the age of standard intensively-farmed turkeys, doubling farming costs but promoting much better meat quality.
When they’ve reached full maturity, the birds are hand-plucked on the farm, which gives the farmers extra time to hang their turkeys and age them the traditional way. This results in tender, melt-in-your-mouth meat with an amazing, intensified flavour.

This catering company does a pretty mean turkey! The whole-roasted turkey ($160) which feeds around eight to ten people, is slow-roasted and accompanied with house gravy and cranberry sauce. The turkey is brined, stuffed and trussed our turkeys for a more even cook, resulting in juicy, tender and flavoursome meat.
For a smaller party, try the classic roast chicken ($48), made with fresh organic chicken and a simple chestnut stuffing. The Kurobuta pork belly porchetta ($138) is another must-try on our list! Think meltingly tender meat and perfectly crackled skin.
Order at least four days in advance.
