Veal head gilded in the same fashion. Take a veal head cut in two, that the brains rest therein: then make it to fry in butter, & let it cool well, then make crepes of beaten eggs, that they will be very large: when cooked on one side take grated parmesan with a little cinnamon & pepper, & sprinkle on the crepes: then put the veal head therein, & turn the crepes well around, & return them & let fry again one or two times: put sugar & cinnamon thereon, & serve so.
