METHOD: 1. Bring the broth to a simmer in a medium saucepan. Reduce the heat to low and keep the broth hot. Prepare the bacon, asparagus and onion. 2. In a pot, heat the butter on medium heat.

ORIGINS Cotoletta is an Italian word for veal breaded cutlet. Cotoletta alla milanese (milanese after its place of origin, Milan) is a fried cutlet similar to Wiener schnitzel, but cooked "bone-in". It is fried in clarified butter or olive oil and traditionally uses exclusively milk-fed veal. Cotoletta alla palermitana (palermitana because it takes origin from Palermo, Sicily) is similar to a milanese but the veal is brushed with olive oil instead of butter, and then grilled instead of being deep fried. The breadcrumb is very often mixed with parsley and/or Parmesan cheese. This cutlet is the only one among its "sisters" (tonkatsu, schnitzel, milanese, American style breaded meat, etc.) that does not have eggs in

INGREDIENTS: •500 g veal cutlet •200 g breadcrumb •2 tbs parmesan •Salt and pepper to taste •parsley

Method: Trim away any fat, and nick the membranes lest they contract and make the cutlets curl while cooking. Flatten them out between the palms of your hands, dip them in the olive oil, dredge them in the bread crumbs seasoned with salt, pepper, parmesan and parsley, pressing down to make sure the crumbs stick, and shake them gently to remove excess.

Arrange the cutlets on a baking tray and cook in a preheated oven (200°) for about 10‘, turning once so both sides brown, and serve hot with salad.

Cannoli are Sicilian pastry dessert. They are well known all over the country and consist of a hard outside (the “rind�) and of a filling of ricotta or chocolate cream. They range in size from "cannulicchi", no bigger than a finger, to the fist-sized proportions typically found south of Palermo, Sicily.

For 20 cannoli (stuffed pastry rolls) Ingredients for the “rids”: •250 g white flour •1 knob lard •½ teaspoon bitter cocoa • a pinch of salt • a tbs sugar • ½ glass Marsala wine (or dry white wine) •Eggwhite •Oil for deep frying

The filling for the ricotta cream: •500 g “ricotta cheese” •150 g sugar •100 g of chopped chocolate

The filling for the chocolate cream: •1 l milk •100 g starch •4 tbs bitter chocolate •12 tbs sugar

To garnish: •Icing sugar •Cinnamon powder

To prepare the “rind�, put 250 gr. of flour on the working surface, shape it into a mound and make a hole in the centre where you will put the lard, the salt, the sugar, the bitter cocoa and enough wine to get a solid dough. After kneading it, let it rest for 1 hour wrapped in a towel. Roll the dough out with the rolling pin so as to get a thin sheet.

Cut many disks 10 cm across out of the sheet, then roll the disks round the traditional cylinders (stainless steel cylinders, 13 cm long and 2 cm across), sealing the joints well with egg white. Fry them in hot boiling oil until both inside and outside are brown in colour. Let them drain on some kitchen paper, then slide the cylinders out. Cooled shells can be placed in an airtight container and kept for up to 4 weeks.

To prepare the filling for “ricotta” cream: Drain the ricotta in a colander for about two hours, then put it in a bowl and knead it with the sugar and the chopped chocolate. When blended well, stuff the “rinds” with it.

To prepare the filling for “chocolate� cream: Mix together sugar, bitter cocoa and starch, then add the milk gradually. Bring to a boil in a moderate heat, then reduce heat and simmer, whisking, for 2 minutes. Remove from the flame and cool to room temperature while whisking continuously then stuff the rind.

You should only fill them immediately or up to 1 hour before serving. Dust with icing sugar and cinnamon powder to garnish when serving.
