Fillet of Veal with wild mushrooms, baby leeks and oloroso sauce

Pair with: Oloroso


Cooking time: 1 hour

The philosophy behind this pairing with Oloroso Antique Fernando de Castilla is a combination of two factors; the Sweetbread which has an amazing texture and is very creamy, adds sweetness and richness to the Veal finding the perfect balance with the Oloroso. In addition the wild Mushrooms and the reduced Oloroso sauce bring caramlised notes which together with the heartiness of the walnut and the truffle matches exactly the bouquet of the hearthy and masculine 20 years old Sherry.
