No 103 Ateletti alla Sarda

(Sauces) - (The Cook's Decameron: A Study In Taste For Italian Dishes)

Ingredients: Veal or fowl, ox palates, stock, tongue, truffles,
butter, mushrooms, sweetbread.
Soak two ox palates in salted water for four hours, then boil them
until the rough skin comes off, and cook them in good stock for six
hours, press them between two plates and let them get cold. Roll
some forcemeat of veal or fowl in flour, cut it into small pieces
about the size of a cork, boil them in salted water, let them get
cold and cut them into circular pieces. Cut the ox palates also
into circular pieces the same size as the bits of forcemeat, then
thinner circles of cooked tongue and truffles. String these pieces
alternately on small silver skewers. Reduce to half its quantity a
pint of Velute sauce (No. 2), and add the cuttings of the truffles,
mushroom trimmings, bits of sweetbread, and a squeeze of lemon
juice. Let it get cold and then mask the atelets (or skewers with
the forcemeat, &c.) with it, and fry them quickly in butter. Fry a
large oval crouton of bread, scoop out the centre and fill it with
fried slices of cucumber and truffles boiled in a little Chablis.
Stick the skewers into the crouton and pour the sauce round it.
For a maigre dish use fillets of fish, truffles, mushrooms, and
Bechamel sauce (No. 3). The cucumber should be boiled for five
minutes before it is fried.
