  • About

This delicious summer stew from Liguria makes the best use of the fresh, light tasting courgettes and tiny potatoes available in that area. In Italy, where the calves are milk-fed and are killed very young, this would be a quick dish – probably only 30 minutes’ simmering with tender meat. But for Northern Europe, where the calves are older, I have allowed extra simmering time.
