Nigella is known for her indulgent recipes full of flavour and her approach to Christmas turkey is no different. The TV chef has two main tips for the festive bird.
Nigella, on her website, recommends filling a large pan or plastic bucket with water, salt and spices and putting the turkey in it.
Then set it in a cold place, Nigella put hers by an open window.
Adding to her brine, the chef puts in oranges, cinnamon sticks, garni, carraway seeds, cloves, allspice berries, star anise and mustard seeds.
Another Nigella tip for Christmas dinner is adding maple syrup.

To do this, Nigella adds goose fat and butter or maple syrup together.
Then smother the turkey with the glaze before putting it in the over.
Nigella will appear in her TV programme Cook, Eat, Repeat tonight at 8pm on BBC Two.
In it the chef cooks in a lavish kitchen, giving Britons her professional insight into getting the best out of their cooking.
