Pick a turkey more thoughtfully this year, thanks to these outlets that are bringing conscousiously-sourced birds to Hong Kong.
Quality food distributor Waves Pacific is bringing in BN Ranch Heritage Turkeys this year. Raised in America, the turkeys are raised humanely, are fed vegetarian non-GMO grains and are given plenty of space to roam. Order dine-in or to-go at Lily & Bloom, or order direct from Waves Pacific and cook it yourself.
Blue Meat Specialist is bringing in free-range turkeys from Australia’s Hunter Valley. They are fed on organic nutrient-rich sorghum grain, which gives them their delicious taste and texture. A cooked turkey is $1,880 for a whole bird or $980 for a half, including all the trimmings – mashed potato, pork stuffing, chorizo Brussels sprouts, gravy and cranberry sauce, with a sweet potato pie to finish. Alternatively, order a raw turkey for $185 per kilo, and have the butcher prepare it for you for an additional $100.
