Osso Buco is an Italian classic of braising the shank of the veal with white wine and vegetables. These marrow bones should be cooked enough to make the meat tear softly from the bone and the marrow should be half melted and eaten with the meat. We cooked with it a traditional Milanaise sauce which is sauce with ham and mushrooms finely sliced, then slices of orange and tomato sauce, and also some spaghetti with parmesan and butter. As one of the final recipes we had done in the kitchen it was interesting to see how we were working independently, read the recipe at home, got to the kitchen and just acted with almost no questions asked. Everyone was very concentrated trying to do their best and fastest. Using the ovens I burnt my hand again, this time a bit more serious, but I wasn’t the only one burning their hand that day, the handles of the pans were so hot, even with a towel the heat was burning. So I was working some of the time with plastic wrap around my hand preventing more heat exposure to the burn. It was weird, and today, 5 days after I still have a blister ha ha ha!

The meat was tied so that it could be transferred from the pan to the plate without falling apart.

Compared to chef's and was not bad at all

I was pretty happy with the result, ate this thing all weekend.

      Thanks, writing was one of my priorities in the first place, this is why I make time for it. Not sure if i’ll be able to do the same while working my stage (internship) but really hoping to keep writing as much as I possibly can. Keep posted! :>

    looks great. i love making Osso Buco. the sauce tastes so good with all that white wine (I use cheap champagne – actually vin mousseux). after all the meat is eaten, i add corn meal to the sauce and turn it into Mamaliga / polenta…

  5. […] Spaghetti with ham and squid legs […]
