Preparation steps


For the veal, peel onions and garlic and finely chop.


Rinse veal, pat dry, trim tendons if necessary and score outside several times. Season veal with salt and pepper and sprinkle with flour.


Heat oil in a large pan and sear veal on all sides. Remove veal from pan and sauté onions and garlic in pan drippings. Stir tomato paste into pan and sauté briefly. Deglaze pan with about 100 ml (approximately 1/2 cup) wine and bring to a boil. Pour a little wine into pan, return to a boil, pour a little more wine into pan and return to a boil again. Return veal to pan with remaining wine and a little stock. Peel carrots and celery root, chop finely and add to pan. Rinse herbs, shake dry, tie into a bunch and add to pan. Cover pan and simmer gently over low heat  1 1/2 to 2 hours, stirring occasionally and adding more broth as needed.


For the garnish, rinse red bell pepper and celery, chop finely and mix with lemon zest.


For the mascarpone vegetables, peel and trim white asparagus and green asparagus as necessary and cut lower thirds of stalks into pieces. Rinse baby carrots and cut in half lengthwise and crosswise. Simmer white asparagus in salted water with sugar for about 10 minutes. Add green asparagus to white asparagus and simmer about 5 more minutes. Add baby carrots to asparagus and simmer about 5 more minutes. Drain vegetables, saving about 100 ml (approximately 1/2 cup) of the cooking water. Mix mascarpone into cooking water while still warm, stir in vegetables and season with salt and pepper.


Season veal with salt, pepper and cayenne pepper. Arrange veal on plates and sprinkle with red bell pepper mixture to serve. Garnish mascarpone vegetables with basil leaves to serve.
