    robd16's Note:

    This traditional Italian dish is originally made with veal. Turkey is the next best thing and this actually tastes and looks quite fancy. You can make everything ahead of time but ONLY assemble at the last minute. Its just great to serve at buffets, you'd never imagine a can of tuna could be transformed to such heights! Serve with lots of salad and tomatoes and some cold new potatoes. The fresh herbs in the broth are essential as are the capers and the anchovies in the sauce (which you wont really taste) Great stuff!

    To cook the turkey

    For the sauce



    1. 1
      To cook the Turkey, put everything into a large pan and snuggle the turkey steaks amongst it.
    2. 2
      Bring to a simmer and cook for 40 minutes, turning once or twice over a low heat. Allow to cool completely in the broth and refrigerate until ready to assemble (still in the broth) This can be done the day before.
    3. 3
      No more than 2 hours before you want to serve it, take the turkey out of the broth and pat dry on paper towels, strain the broth through a sieve into a bowl and discard the vegetables and herbs.
    4. 4
      Arrange the dry turkey onto a serving platter in a neat slightly overlapping fashion.
    5. 5
      Make the sauce (can also be done the day before) by putting everything in the blender or food processor apart from the broth. Blend thoroughly and little by little add the broth until the sauce is the consistency of thick pouring cream.
    6. 6
      Neatly pour over the turkey and garnish with the olives capers and parsley and refrigerate until ready to serve for no more than 2 hours.
