To make gilded veal brains. Take the brains of veal that is cooked, and chop it very finely, and put in cinnamon, nutmeg, a little salt, and three or four egg yolks, and mix well all together: then take a caul of pork, & cut into pieces the size of a hand: then take the brains with a spoon, & put it on the caul, & enclose it well therein, & moisten it in beaten egg yolks, & make it fry in butter that is not at all black, & sugar thereon.
