Veal is a very popular meat in Italy, especially in the north. The best veal comes from calves killed when only three months old, when they are still milk fed. The meat should be very pale pink in color.
In Piedmont, there are many recipes for veal. This is a very rich Piedmontese dish belonging to the tradition of Turin, which means that it was created (as were similar dishes found in French cooking) in the kitchens of the Royal Palace or of some aristocratic family in the eighteenth century, when the splendors of the Court of Versailles dictated fashions for all of Europe.
3 tablespoons butter
4 oz lean veal
2 slices pickled tongue
2 oz salt pork
1 garlic clove, peeled
1 1/2 cups of sprigs flat-leafed parsley
1/2 oz dried mushrooms, soaked and squeezed dry
1 bread roll softened in 1 cup milk and squeezed dry
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons freshly grated parmesan cheese
1 1/4 lb veal breast with a pocket cut in it
3 oz prosciutto, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup Barolo wine
2 cups beef or veal stock
All-Clad 5-pc. Stainless All Purpose Pan Set This all-purpose pan from All-Clad is versatile enough to handle stir-frying, sauteing, searing, simmering and braising, plus it's ideal for starting food on the stove and finishing it in the oven. The domed lid makes it extra roomy and securely seals in flavor and moisture. Plus, it's attractive enough to serve from. All-Clad's pure aluminum core allows the pan to heat evenly on the bottom and up the sides so food cooks evenly. Double-riveted handles add convenience for lifting from stovetop to table or counter. Cleans up beautifully every time. Comes with a large spoon with deep, sloped sides so you can gather every last portion plus two oven mitts in brilliant red to prevent burns when lifting the pan. A great gift set for the newlyweds or new home owners.
In a wide, shallow pan over moderate heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter and brown the lean veal.
Put the veal through a meat grinder twice, together with the tongue, salt pork, truffle, garlic, parsley and mushrooms. Add the bread, the egg, Parmesan and salt and pepper to taste. Mix well and fill the pocket of the breast, alternating layers of the stuffing with a few slices of prosicutto. Sew the opening up with kitchen thread and tie the meat into a cylinder shape.
Heat the remaining butter with the oil in a wide, shallow pan. Lay the rolled veal on top and brown on all sides. Season with salt and pepper, cover and continue to cook over moderate heat for at least 40 minutes, basting from time to time first with the Barolo, and then with the stock. Move the meat around often and sprinkle with the cooking juices.
Serve hot, sliced and coated in its sauce.

| Beef & Veal Unlike other cookbooks that only show photos of the finished project, each Williams-Sonoma Mastering title, with more than 300 full-color photographs, takes you through every stage of a recipe from mise en place to garnishing. You see what every step should look like, feel like, and taste like so clearly it's as though a master chef is standing right next to you. The special Troubleshooting tips not only show you where and how things can go wrong--with detailed photos and explanations--but how to fix those problems without having to start all over again. The all-new recipes in Hors D'Oeuvres; Soups & Stews; Pasta, Noodles & Dumplings; and Beef & Veal were developed specifically for the Mastering series. Unique among cookbooks, each title teaches cooks to master basic techniques and recipes and then shows how to build on the basics with the more complex variations. For example, you will learn the techniques of roasting, sauteing, grilling, and braising; how to make the perfect chicken stock; and how to integrate thise basics to create dishes as tantalizing and as varied as Veal Chops with Lemon and Sage or Chateaubriand with Bearnaise Sauce. Destined to become classsics, the Williams-Sonoma Mastering cookbooks will transform every reader--from novice to seasoned home cook--into a confodent, competent master of their kitchen.
