Although they take time to prepare, Veal olives are well worth the extra effort - they make a very attractive main course for a dinner party. If the escalopes seem large, cut each one in two and serve two per person.

  • 16 oz veal escalopes approx. 4 oz each), beaten
  • Flour for coating
  • Butter for frying
  • 1/4 pint chicken stock
  • 1/4 pint dry white wine
  • 1 bouquet garni
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • Butter for frying
  • 1 small onion peeled and finely chopped
  • 4 oz button mushrooms cleaned and finely chopped
  • 3 oz fresh white breadcrumbs
  • 2 tbsp freshly chopped parsley
  • Finely grated rind and juice of 1 lemon


  • To prepare the stuffing, melt a knob of butter in a small frying pan. Add the onion and fry until golden. Add the mushrooms and continue cooking for a further 2 minutes.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the remaining stuffing ingredients and salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste, pressing well together with a wooden spoon to combine.
  • Lay the escalopes flat on a board or working surface and divide the stuffing equally among them. Roll up the escalopes and tie with string. Roll in flour until evenly coated.
  • Melt a knob of butter in a flameproof casserole. Put in the escalopes and brown quickly on all sides, over high heat. Pour in the chicken stock and white wine and bring to the boil, stirring constantly. Lower the heat, put in the bouquet garni and season to taste.
