- Quebec milk fed veal
Season the veal and then sear it in a hot frying pan with a thread of oil. Make sure to sear on all sides for about a minute.
Place the veal on an ovenproof pan and finish cooking it by placing in the oven for about 7 minutes.
Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
- Celeriac purée
In a medium sauce pot on medium heat with a thread of oil, sweat the onions until lightly caramelized. Add the celeriac and chicken stop and stir. Cook for around 20 minutes, or until the celeriac is soft. Next, place in a blender with the cubes of butter. Season accordingly.
- Squash virgin sauce
Quarter the tomatoes and then remove the seeds and skin. Next cut the tomato flesh into a fine brunoise (little cubes). Set aside. Remove the leaves from the parsley stalks and finely chop them, finely chop the chives as well. Set aside. Toast the pine nuts in a frying pan with a thread of oil for about 2 minutes and set aside. In a medium sauce pot of salted boiling water, blanch the squash for about 2 minutes, making sure not to overcook the cubes. Strain and pass under cold water to stop from overcooking. Mix all of the elements together then add the olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Season with sea salt and fresh cracked pepper.
In a hot frying pan with a thread of oil, sautée the cipollinis for a few seconds then add the crushed garlic. Wet with white wine and add the bay leaf and thyme. Season with salt and pepper and gently simmer for 20 minutes covered. Next, uncover and continue to reduce until most of the liquid has evaporated. In a hot frying pan with a thread of oil and a bit of butter, sautée the confit onions to give them a nice caramelization. Set aside.
Place the veal on a round plate and a nice spoonful of purée on either side. Place the confit cipollinis here and there. Finally, place a generous helping of the squash virgin sauce on top and around the meat.
Virgin sauce can be used with fish and meat. A very versatile recipe that can be adapted for many situations. Feel free to experiment with different vegetables instead of the squash and tomatoes.
