The host has the right of first refusal—even if older family are in attendance. As the host, you have every right to carve the turkey—assuming you’re interested. “The task of carving the turkey is a weighty one and a role to be taken very seriously,” says Farley.

How long should a turkey rest before carving?

You carve a turkey the same way you carve a chicken or other poultry. It might be intimidating since it’s the largest bird of the bunch, but with a little know-how, you’ll handle it like a pro. Before you cut a thing, let your turkey rest — at least 30 minutes — so its juices don’t end up on the cutting board.

Why does the man carve the turkey?
