Ingredients

Directions

Clean the fillet of veal. You can ask your butcher to do this. Season with salt and pepper and brush all over with pesto sauce. Wrap the veal in the pork gut strings. Set aside.

To make the aubergine puree. Peel the skin of the aubergine and set aside. In a large stockpot with 1-inch of water and a steamer basket, place the aubergine and steam for 20 minutes. Remove and puree in a food processor. In a medium sized saucepan heat 1 tablespoon olive oil add the pureed aubergine, basil leaves, truffles, and shallots. Flavor the mixture with salt, pepper, and drizzle with more olive oil.

In a medium sized saucepan, sear the fillet in olive oil until brown on all sides and cooked to desired doneness.

Save the veal pan drippings, keeping it in a small saucepan at low heat.

In separate small skillet, pour enough olive oil to about 1/4-inch deep and heat on medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, fry the peels of the aubergine until crispy and browned. Drain on paper towels. Set aside.

To serve, spoon 3 scoops of aubergine puree, 3 medallions of veal on top, and cover in veal sauce. Garnish with fried peels and black truffles.
