Grilled Veal Medallions

Executive Pastry Chef Danilo Pamintuan,
Piazza De Nardi

The cherries used in this garnish are available at Piazza De Nardi. This recipe is for a whole torte, the photo depicts a single serving. The tender coolness of the veal is the first note. The round, fresh herbal flavour of the dressing is balanced with a hint of acidity and finishes with a smoky aroma.
