Veal sweetbreads

Recommendations

"This dish is perfect. Exquisitely cooked sweetbreads have the slightest crust, and taste simply of themselves. A scattering of Pantellerian capers, fried until they open like little flowers, top the dish, with a generous amount of intensely green, fried parsley. A drizzle of gorgeous, buttery olive oil completes the plate. Each element is essential, and comes together as a minimalist’s delight. This is the dish that made me want to cook for Holly Smith at Cafe Juanita. It took a single bite."

Nobody's quite sure how these rich, meaty glandular morsels came to be called "sweetbreads," but uh — they rule. Stop worrying about it.
