Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Of all the many Italian main dishes that Mama DeGregori made, Tom's absolute favorite was stuffed veal breast and unfortunately the most difficult to find done properly. The pocket in the relatively large veal breast has to be cut just right and filled to capacity. To serve it - always bone in - slice between the bone so that one has what looks like veal chops with stuffing in the center.and the white gristle gleaming.
