This entry is a re-creation of a recipe from The Prince of Transylvania's Court Cookbook (Hungary, 16th c.), entitled "Salted Veal Head City Style". [insert a brief description of dish here, possibly including any or all of the following: characteristics of the final dish, when or how it might have been served, and why you selected it]

The Source Recipe
The original text of the recipe is as follows:

Salted veal head, city style. Clean and cook it like I told you. Once it's done and you're about to serve it, take out its legs and intestines from the pot, leave its head, let it cool and make salty pancakes out of a dozen eggs for the legs and the intestines. Slice its legs and intestines, mix it in the pancakes and fry it in butter. Serve its head in a plate and put the fried legs and intestines to the sides of the plate. You may add some sugar to the intestines and the legs, but not to the head.
