How to Carve a Holiday Turkey Like a Disney Parks Chef

posted on November 23rd, 2009 by Thomas Smith, Social Media Director, Disney Parks


Sure, carving a turkey can be intimidating — most of us only do it once or twice a year. But for chefs at Disney Parks, it’s routine. They’ll carve thousands of turkeys this holiday season and they’ll make it look easy.

To make sure you can pull it off, Walt Disney World executive chef Lenny DeGeorge is offering a quick how-to. He says start with the drumstick:

To safely carve your holiday turkey, it’s important to give yourself some room to operate and make sure you’re using a sharp knife, according to Chef Lenny. And he says if you get intimidated by carving the turkey in front of the family, there’s nothing to be ashamed about preparing it in the kitchen before bringing it to the table. Good luck.

I watched this video demo and then I carved the family turkey for Thanksgiving, using the tips. It worked so much better than my usual approach! Great little video. Very fun and helpful!
