Veal, Carrot and Chestnut Ragout

Chestnuts are harvested in the area around Alba and figure in many savory
and sweet dishes there, particularly stews like this ragout. Gathered after
they have fallen, chestnuts are traditionally served with game, but they
also pair well with veal-another staple of northern Italian cuisine. If
fresh chestnuts are unavailable, roasted vacuum-packed chestnuts-sold in
jars in the specialty foods section of many supermarkets-can be used.
Supply crusty bread for soaking up the juices. Accompany with a radicchio
and escarole salad, and uncork a Barolo.

18 fresh chestnuts--If fresh chestnuts are unavailable, roasted
vacuum-packed chestnuts-sold in jars in the specialty foods
section of many supermarkets-can be used.

2 1/2 pounds veal stew meat, cut into 2x1-inch pieces
4 tablespoons olive oil

1 1/2 cups chopped onion
1 1/2 tablespoons chopped garlic
1 bay leaf
2 1/2 cups canned low-salt chicken broth
3/4 cup dry white wine

6 medium carrots, peeled, cut into 1-inch pieces
3 tablespoons chopped fresh sage

Preheat oven to 400 deg. F. Using small sharp knife, cut an X in each
chestnut. Place in roasting pan. Bake until tender and shells loosen, about
35 minutes. Cool slightly. Remove hard shell and papery brown skin from
each nut. Set nuts aside.

Pat veal pieces dry with paper towels. Sprinkle with pepper. Heat 2
tablespoons oil in heavy large pot over medium-high heat. Working in
batches, add veal to pot and cook until brown on all sides, about 10
minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer veal to large bowl.

Heat 2 tablespoons oil in same pot. Add onion, garlic and bay leaf. Reduce
heat to medium; cover and cook until onion is tender, stirring
occasionally, about 5 minutes. Stir in broth and wine. Add veal and any
accumulated juices from bowl. Bring to boil. Reduce heat. Cover; simmer 45
minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add carrots to stew. Cover and cook until carrots are almost tender, about
25 minutes. Uncover and cook until meat is very tender and liquid is
reduced to thin sauce consistency, about 25 minutes longer. Stir in nuts
and sage. Simmer until nuts are heated through, about 3 minutes. Discard
bay leaf. Transfer ragout to bowl. Serves 6.

Veal Roast (Arrosto)

2 garlic cloves, minced
3 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp dried sage leaves
1 Tbsp dried rosemary (if you have fresh, tuck branches and leaves under
  the string ties)
1 boneless veal shoulder roast, 2 1/2 to 3 pounds, trimmed of fat, rolled
  and tied
3 cups Chicken stock or broth [note: original recipe called for 2 cups
  stock plus 1 cup dry white wine]

Preheat oven to 350F. In small bowl mix sage, rosemary, garlic, oil, and
pepper. Rub surface of veal with this seasoned oil. Place roast in a large
roaster pan with a lid. Pour 2 cups stock around veal. Roast partially
covered for 1 hour, turning 2 or 3 times, until barely tender. Uncover and
roast until lightly browned, about 15 minutes longer. Remove meat from pan,
and tent with foil to keep warm. Put pan juices in a pan over medium heat,
and bring juices to a boil, scraping up brown bits from bottom of pan. Add
remaining stock to pan. Season with additional pepper to taste. Slice veal
roast and serve with pan juices.
