Turkey, or galopoula literally means the 'French bird'. Mostly they are seen in roasting pans around Christmas, stuffed with rice, chestnuts, raisins, pine nuts and spices.
Turkeys came to Europe from the Americas, but Greek and English aren't the only languages that get it's origins wrong (ie dinde in French or hindi in Turkish' suggests it comes from India'). In Portuguese, however, it's a peru.
