Ingredients

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

To make Sformato: Brush 4 (3-inch) ramekins with butter and coat with fresh bread crumbs, tapping out and reserving excess. In a large pot of boiling water, blanch celery root with pinch of salt, garlic and thyme for 5 minutes. Remove from water using slotted spoon.

In a large skillet, on medium-high heat, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add the minced onions and celery root, season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring, until onions are golden. Remove from heat. In a medium bowl, beat eggs and whisk in the pear, chopped parsley, mashed potatoes, celery root mixture and salt and pepper. Fill ramekin half way with celery root mixture. Place 1 fontina cube in the middle, then finish filling ramekin with celery root mixture and cover with reserved bread crumbs. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes.

To make the cherry sauce: In a medium skillet, heat remaining olive oil on low heat. Add shallots and cook until golden. Add 1/2 cup of the cherries, molasses, port wine, and veal stock. Reduce the sauce to 1 cup. Strain sauce through a chinois or fine meshed sieve into a clean bowl and whisk in the butter to finish. Season, to taste. Add remaining cherries to sauce. Set aside and keep warm.

To make the Veal. Brush veal with Dijon mustard. Season with salt and pepper and roll in mixed herbs. In a large skillet, heated on medium-high, add olive oil and sear the veal on all sides. Finish to cool in the preheated oven until medium rare, about 5 to 10 minutes. Remove meat from skillet and allow to rest. Slice veal right before serving

On a large serving platter, arrange celery root sformato on bottom of platter, place sliced veal on top and drizzle with cherries and sauce.
