More About This Menu
- Start a day ahead when preparing this menu; for the vitello tonnato, a classic Italian dish, it's important to braise the veal slowly and give it time to chill overnight. If you like, you can roll out the dough for the peach tart and refrigerate it overnight, as well.
- Since zucchini blossoms have a short shelf life, buy them immediately before you plan to use them. Be sure to remove the stamens before working with them. See a brief guide to sourcing and cooking with squash blossoms »
