Imagine if that were "in Fricasso"? It may not be, but we've got what  
appears to me, after a quick glance, and in my broken culinary  
Italian, to be little bits of veal fried in a pan with ft and onions,  
then broth, spices, and [honey? Or is that apples?] added to make a  
sauce, in which the dish is finished in a clay pot on the embers...

Companion of the Seastar...

...humbly request a translation from any kind soul willing and able to  
provide one, because my Italian is dubious, at best ;-).
