This is such a good recipe one which I have fixed for many years. I learned to fix it at a cooking class in Tuscuny and really the only difference is that I brush a bit of milk on my very thinly pounded veal (I buy the best veal I can buy at a Whole Foods type of store, because good veal is usually sold to the restaurants, so be prepared to pay a bit more) Then I dredge lightly in flour to which I have added a big tablespoon of finely grated parmesean. I reduce my wine down by half and if your cream begins to curdle it's because you have the heat too high, turn it down, add a bit more cream if it hasn't curdled too badly and it should smooth out. I also do my sage leaves at the end. I wipe out my pan add a tablespoon of butter and add the leaves because it just takes a moment then lay them atop the veal, looks prettier too.
