Ask your butcher to cut the veal knuckle into small pieces as this creates more surface area, which results in a richer flavour. I drive my butcher mad getting him to cut it into 3 cm cubes – see what your butcher can do for you, as the smaller the better. You need to weigh all the vegetables once they are peeled and trimmed to achieve the correct balance of flavour. This reduction is used to add flavour and depth to sauces, braises and risotto, or reduced further to use as a glaze for meat
