Bootiful Deal For Marco.
Norfolk, UK: The Independent reports that the hot-tempered Yorkshireman, who became the youngest recipient of the gastronomic world’s highest prize, three Michelin stars, is to become an “ambassador” for Britain’s biggest turkey farmer (and Turkey Twizzler creator) Bernard Matthews.

This is way braver than Heston’s Little Chef adventure.
