“From fridge to table, a really quick mid-week recipe with only a few ingredients that are readily on hand: veal cooked in an orange and wine sauce. Adapted from 'Colour Me Healthy' by Rita Erlich and Dr Alice Murkies and an earlier recipe of my own. When I came across this recipe in 'Colour Me Healthy', I dug out a recipe I'd had in my very first hand-written recipe book from the early seventies when so many of the influences on Australian cuisine were only just beginning to make a ripple and so many of our recipes were still basically derived from English recipes. Although I suffered English school meals as a child, there really is a lot more to English - and earlier Australian - cuisine than chops and three veg! I am, therefore, posting this as both an English and an Australian recipe.”
