When roasting your bird, chucking in red onion and carrots will help flavour your gravy later. Make sure you add small amounts of hot water to roasting tray and chicken/ turkey to keep it moist and create enough juices for gravy.
Once the bird is roasted, remove and set aside. Transfer juices in the pan/tray to the hob on low heat. Add chicken stock, Worcestershire sauce, bay leaves and marmite to pan. Stir well and bring to a simmer.
Add red wine, black pepper, stir again and cook for 30 mins until gravy has reduced to roughly half.
Once reduced, remove carrots using a slotted spoon and set aside. Stir cornflour into the gravy, bring back to simmer and cook down until gravy has reached desired consistency which is entirely up to personal preference.
