Our Michelin Chefs Cook series puts the spotlight on ingredients handled by expert hands, highlighting the beauty of simple seasonal ingredients and pantry basics and exploring their full potential from the simple to the sophisticated.
A roast is always a good idea as it lets the oven do most of the grunt work while you are able to entertain guests. But never overlook the value of an even better gravy: those 10-15 minutes that you let your roast turkey, chicken, pork or whatever meat rest after it has cooked is the perfect time to prepare a killer gravy to bring all the flavours together.
