Move over Top Chef contestants: there is a new contender in town.
House Speaker John Boehner, who is responsible for cooking his family’s turkey at Thanksgiving, shared his family’s brine recipe with the public in a video released Tuesday.
“Well I decided a number of years ago I would brine a Turkey,” Boehner says in the video. “I found some recipe online, worked on it, tinkered with it [and] over a period of five years I settled in on my current brine.”
The Speaker then gives viewers a step-by-step video guide on his brine recipe including his secret ingredient: maple syrup.
