Herbed Turkey Two Ways

Pairing: Russian River Valley Pinot Noir: 2010 J Vineyards or 2010 Freeman.

Bi-Rite owner Sam Mogannam, who always uses a heritage-breed turkey, cooks the white and dark meats separately to prevent the breast from drying out before the tougher leg meat is fully cooked.

Because of this turkey’s large size, salting at least 8 hours before cooking allows the seasoning to fully penetrate.
