leftover turkey recipes

There's a selection of recipes to use up all that leftover turkey from Christmas on The Curry House website. The recipes including our famous recipe for Classic British Turkey Curry, Roast Turkey Shami Kebabs and Turkey Jalfrezi.


Arthur Kenney-Herbert was a cavalry officer who served in India during the British Raj. Using the pen name "Wyvern", he wrote Culinary Jottings For Madras in which he gives instructions to British memsahibs on how to manage their servants, give refined dinners, and make Anglo-Indian curries. The book was a huge success, and made Wyvern famous in colonial India.

When he retired to England at the rank of colonel, Wyvern built on his reputation as a culinary authority. He founded a cookery school, gave cooking demonstrations, and wrote books and articles for prestigious magazines.

In this lively and fascinating biography, food historian and author of The Curry House website David Smith charts Wyvern's life and times, recreates his classic recipe for Madras Chicken Curry, and considers his legacy as a Victorian celebrity chef.
