4 feuilles de brik (pastry sheets)
120g melted butter
8 slices prosciutto di Parma
8 slices provolone cheese
1 russet potato
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
250ml double cream
110g butter, room temperature
4 1/2 tbsps extra-virgin olive oil
4 (175g) pieces veal tenderloin
250ml veal stock
2 tbsps sage, chiffonade
120ml red wine vinegar
1 shallot
150g raw spinach
1) Place a piece of feuille de brik on the counting board and brush heavily with melted butter. Lay out two slices of prosciutto side by side and lay two slices of provolone on top. Fold the two sides into the centre and roll up like an egg roll. Repeat with remaining three feuille de brik and refrigerate all raviolettas.

2) Peel potato and cut into cubes. Place cubes in a large pot, cover with cold water and salt. Bring to a simmer and cook until tender. Remove from heat and drain potatoes. Place in blender with cream and butter. Puree until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Keep warm.

3) Preheat oven to 200C/Gas 4.

4) In large saute pan over high heat, add 3 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil. Season veal with salt and pepper. Add veal to pan and sear evenly on both sides. Place in oven for 8 minutes. Remove from oven and let rest for a few minutes before slicing.

5) While veal is roasting, place large nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil and cook raviolettas until golden brown on each side and cheese is melted. Remove from pan and keep warm. Place veal stock in pan, add sage and bring to a simmer.

6) To serve, place 60g potato bechamella in centre of each plate. Slice veal fillet into four to five pieces. Place ravioletta in centre of potato and fan veal over it.

7) Whisk together 1 tablespoon of olive oil and the red wine vinegar. Slice and add the shallot. Warm vinaigrette slightly and pour over spinach to wilt it. Place spinach over the veal fillet. Drizzle 2 tablespoons of veal sage sauce around potato bechamella.
