I would like to cook my Thanksgiving Turkey in my Convection Oven. Can you please give me directions.

Bepkom says …

Your local store will have a brochure with cooking instructions. You can pick one up when you select your turkey.

Sorry - but there were no cooking directions attached to the bird we bought. CONTRARY TO THIS WEBSITE, THERE WERE NO BROCHURES available when picking up or ordering. How about just posting the instructions on your site??!? Your customer service for picking up the birds SUCKS. One guy, talking on the phone while other WF lackeys just stand around refusing to make eye contact. Waited 15 minutes for 2 items. Same problem last year. Last time I will get our Thanksgiving food from WF

Hello, I absolutely love you store! Just a few days ago I tasted the mediterranean risotto, which was fabulous. Can you please add this recipe to your site? When browsing your recipes I noticed it was not there. Thank you!!
