Ooo! This is just what I needed! 5 Stars! I reccomend this to anyone who loves turkey, but is tired of having it the same way all the time. The combinations of leek, brandy and grapes makes for the most delightful taste!

Made this without the peppers (my stomach can't take them) and a bit of onion added. Yum! Sauce was rich and creamy and v. tasy. I served with wild rice and boiled peas. Will be making again (including a veggie version with mushrooms) for a dinner party tomorrow.
