So I'm hosting an early xmas dinner with friends on the first weekend of December. I never realised that it would be an issue pre-ordering a turkey for that date, until now all the supermarkets have their xmas selections up, and all are only available for delivery the few days before xmas or thanksgiving!

Any tips on how I can get a turkey for that day?!

I'm based in London.

Have you tried Lidle or Aldi. They do a wonderful Turkey breast basted with butter. I was introduced to Lidle and Aldi in France in the Summer as food has become so horrendously expensive in France. Carrefour is ridiculously expensive now ( think Waitrose with knobs on)
Their salmon and meat is amazing. I don't know how they do it. In the UK in September I bought figs, pastry, and goats cheese and made a caramised onion, fig and goats cheese tart. All ingredients from Lidle.
Their chocolate and wine are also amazing and their avocados and Salmon.

If you are going down the supermarket route, just buy a frozen turkey. They are exactly the same kind that they will be selling fresh in a few weeks.

you wouldnt need to pre order as they would sell them instore at the supermarket anyway.
