How to make the perfect roast turkey (the easy way)

The big day is almost here, so you should probably swot up before it's too late and you're attempting to defrost the thing in the microwave, surrounded by your crying family.

Here's Patrick Drake with his top tips to make sure you roast a turkey that'll have people flipping around hyperbole for years to come.

Drake, a former investment banker before making the leap to becoming a super chef, has worked for the likes of Jose Pizarro and at The Fat Duck in Bray. He's now the founder of the world's fastest cookery course, The 60 Second Chef - so he knows his roasts.

The 60 Second Chef gives you all the knowledge you need in quick, bite-sized chunks so you can spend less time learning and more time cooking. All for the price of a dinner for two, just £49 – and for any ShortList readers who uses The 60 Second Christmas, they will automatically receive £10 off the full 60 Second Chef cookery course, making it £39 (redeemable until 31st December 2015).
