1
Begin by preparing the veal. Heat the oil in a large casserole dish or pan, then add the onions, carrots, celery and fennel and cook on a medium heat until softened
  • 120ml of olive oil
  • 2 onions, diced
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 2 celery sticks, diced
  • 1 fennel, diced
2
Add the white wine and reduce by half, then add the chicken stock, garlic halves, thyme and bay leaves. Bring the liquid to the boil, then add the veal shank. Braise for about 2½ hours or until the meat is tender
  • 250ml of white wine
  • 2l chicken stock
  • 1 head of garlic, sliced in half (horizontally)
  • 3 sprigs of thyme
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 veal shank
3
To make the risotto place the chicken stock in a pan and gently simmer. Have a ladle ready to transfer the stock
  • 1l chicken stock
4
In a separate, heavy-bottomed pan sweat the diced onions in a small amount of oil until soft and translucent, then add the risotto rice to the pan and stir through to toast it until the rice appears a little translucent around the edges
  • 20g of onion, sliced
  • 25g of olive oil
  • 100g of Arborio risotto rice
5
Pour in the white wine, heat until nearly all the liquid is reduced, then add a ladle of stock and stir well. Reduce the stock, then add another ladle, stir and reduce again. Continue to repeat this process, testing the rice every couple of minutes for consistency
  • 50ml of white wine
6
Once the rice has noticeably softened, pour in two-thirds of the remaining stock along with the saffron. Stir the risotto continuously until it reaches a suitable consistency, where the rice has absorbed some of the stock but there is still a decent amount of liquid in the pan. Remove the pan from the heat
  • 1g of saffron
7
Add the Parmesan, butter and oil to the risotto and return the pan to the heat. Use the spoon to rigorously whip the new ingredients into the risotto until fully combined. Continue to heat gently until it reaches the desired consistency - the finished risotto should flow without being too runny when tipped onto a plate
  • 25g of Parmesan
  • 50g of butter
  • 20ml of extra virgin olive oil
8
To serve, season the risotto with a dash of saffron vinegar, then pour into a large serving platter. Top the risotto with the whole cooked veal shank, ready to carve at the table
  • 15ml of white wine vinegar, infused with 1g saffron
