    For one reason or another, despite it having been my son's 14th birthday on Monday we still haven't done a special meal for him, so I want to make one tonight.
    In France on Tuesday I bought some veal: shoulder escalopes about a centimetre thick, lovely and pink, not white!
    What shall I do with them? I'm inclined to French-style as I have some foie gras for starters (yes, yes I know!) and loads of lovely cheese.

    Schnitzel?
    Saltimbocca?
    Cordon Bleu?
    Grilled with garlic butter?
    Grilled with a red wine and butter sauce?

    Well jealous.

    White wine and butter sauce maybe - my children don't like red!

    Deeelish --- and the children yummed it all up!

    How very yummy! We should promote rose veal production here in the UK

    Sadly it's not very fashionable and (I think) most people assume that it involves treating veal calves badly (which I know is not the case). I've had to resort to buying rose veal from farmer's fayre because I cannot get it from any of my local butchers.

    My post vanished, but I had posted about Veal with Orange sauce, fry the veal in butter, when cooked remove from the pan, deglaze the pan with the juice of an orange, add the grated peel or fine strips and chopped parsley, tiny pinch of salt and black pepper.
