Anyone who has read Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard knows of the Russians’ fondness for cherries. Especially prized are the tart morelivki (morello cherries), which flourish in Russia’s central heartlands. In this recipe, the cherries are combined with veal—a meat delicate enough to absorb their flavor—and the result is a stew of a beautiful wine-red color and a subtly sweet taste.
