Fosse Turkey Legs with Leek, Potato and Mushrooms

Dom restaurant, in Thurlaston Leciestershire, was established by Aga and Vincenzo in 2022, it embodies their international souls, by blending locally sourced, quality British ingredients with influences from around the world.

Vincenzo Della Pietra was born in Nola near Naples in Southern Italy. At the age of 18 Vincenzo left Italy to travel the world, discovering different cultures, cooking methods, new foods and spices. This also gave him the opportunity to work alongside some of the world’s greatest chefs within famous Michelin starred restaurants.

Vincenzo chooses Fosse Meadows bronze turkey for their Christmasmenu, for it’s full rich flavour and generous quantity of tender meat.

The same rich flavour in breast, legs and thigh means dishes from frozen portions are delicious enjoyed at any time of the year!
