Thanks for posting this recipe as I had been looking for this particular Venetian version of the recipe for months. I had tried it while I was in Milan in a restaurant with venetian cuisine and it was heavenly. The best and most tender liver I've ever tasted. I haven't tried it yet but I'm sure it will be exactly like the original one I'd tried by reading the ingredients and the preparation. thanks!
