This veal stew recipe with asparagus and mushrooms, is inspired by the “fondue”, where the veal meat is cooked in liquid. The meat is cooked in a stew prepared with the trimmings of veal fillets previously sauteed and seasoned with turmeric and cumin. It comes with green asparagus and sautéed mushrooms. Create your recipe with seasonal mushroom like fresh morels or frozen chanterelles.
