Which do think is more likely to become the nation’s new favourite supper dish – a curry from rugby player and ballroom dancer extraordinaire Matt Dawson or a posh dinner party dish created by housewives’ favourite jockey Frankie Dettori? Would you rather sample sports presenter Annabel Croft’s tortilla wraps over the sausage-style recipe by Ready Steady Cook star Lesley Waters?

Well, the jury’s out – and the good thing is, the jury is you! One thing the celebrity amateur and professional cooks all have in common is a desire to help the British turkey industry get back on its feet after bird flu at the same time as raising money for their favourite children’s charity SPARKS. They have all come up with an original recipe using British turkey and are now waiting for the votes to come in from the public.

Voters logging on to can choose between Matt’s mild and creamy Korma curry, Annabel’s spicy turkey tortillas, a sophisticated turkey roll by Frankie Dettori , a turkey and veg feast from Paul Rankin, Nick Nairn’s Parma ham wrapped turkey breasts and Lesley’s sausage-like turkey koftas.

You need to keep voting to save your favourite dish from being booted out of the challenge until the winner is declared in the summer by compere Phil Vickery. He says: “The point of the challenge is to show you can enjoy British turkey anywhere, any time of the year. And because turkey is a superfood, it’s extra reason to get creative in the kitchen.”

But if you think you can do better, here’s your chance! Send your original British turkey recipe to to be in with a chance of winning a spa break for two. The charity SPARKS will then be a winner too with the British turkey industry donating cash for every recipe received.
