1 For the Soup: Chop one potato and half the onion. Heat 25g/1oz butter in a small pan and cook the chopped onion gently for a few minutes to soften.

2 Add the chopped potato, half the chestnuts and 600ml/1 pint chicken stock, bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes, or until the potato is tender.

3 Stir in the double cream and simmer for another five minutes. Pour the soup into a food processor, add 50ml/2fl oz white wine and blitz until smooth.

4 Return to the pan, add half the cheese and heat gently until melted. Stir in the chopped dill, season and serve in bowls.

5 Using a melon baller, cut balls out of the remaining potato and blanch balls in a pan of boiling water for 3-5 minutes. Drain well.

6 Heat 1 tbsp vegetable oil in an ovenproof saute pan, add the potato balls and saute for five minutes to brown all over.

7 Transfer the pan to the oven and cook for another 5-8 minutes, or until tender and browned. Add the remaining chestnuts and heat through.

8 Cut the turkey breast horizontally into four slices and use a meat hammer to beat out thinly.

9 Using a fork, mash the remaining cheese, spoon onto the turkey slices and roll up. Secure using cocktail sticks.

10 Heat 1 tbsp vegetable oil in a griddle pan. Add the turkey rolls and cook for 8-10 minutes, turning often until cooked through and browned.

11 Thinly slice the last onion. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a wok, add the onion and cook until tender. Add 150ml/ ¼ pint stock and 150ml/ ¼ pint white wine and simmer rapidly to reduce by about half.

Spoon the sprouts onto a plate, sit the turkey rolls on top and arrange the potatoes around the edge. Spoon over the sauce.
