Veal Cooked With Shallots


First - the picture accompanying this recipe is NOT the dish itself - I just wanted to explain what shallots are. They are referred to as "Spring Onions" in some countries and "Scallions" in other countries.

1kg veal fillet

1 small onion

cayenne pepper

2 sticks celery

1 1/4 cups stock

2 tablespoons butter

6 shallots or small pickling onions

yolks of 4 eggs

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 turnip

1 teaspoon chopped parsley

juice of 1 lemon

5 tablespoons cream
