Turkey in Brine


In a pot put 1/4 of the water, add the rest of the ingredients. Bring to boil, reduce the heat and stir continuously until the salt is completely dissolved. Add the rest of the water and let it cool. Submerge the turkey in brine for 24 hours. Remove from the brine, put in on the rack and refrigerate for 24 hours.

Preheat oven at 200C. Remove turkey from fridge 1 hour before roasting. In a roasting tray put all the chopped vegetables and herbs. On top of it a roasting rack with a turkey on it. Brush turkey skin with butter, season with salt, roast for 1 hour. Rotate tray and cook for 1 and 1/2 hours. Allow the turkey to rest at least 30 minutes before carving.

Use the vegetables for gravy. Bake peaches for 30 minutes. Once the gravy is ready add chopped roasted peaches and toasted walnuts.

Scavolini by Vita Italiana Launch


We are excited to share with you the video of what it was a fantastic night, November 23rd 2018, the launch of Scavolini by Vita Italiana.

As you know, Scavolini is an Italian kitchen manufacturer whose ethos revolves around ‘The Italian Sense of Beauty’. The global success of the ‘Made in Italy’ label is world-renowned and lies in its ability to give pleasure through its aesthetics and flawless perfection. The Scavolini approach is no different to that of great Italian design houses, with kitchens, bathrooms and living areas designed and manufactured in harmony with a culture where outstanding design is blessed with beauty and originality.

Scavolini exited the Irish Market almost a decade ago but continued its global expansion in European and American markets. We at Vita Italiana have brought it back.
