4 Portions


  • 1 veal rack Fontaine Family (approx. 1.8 kg)
  • 1 big onion, cut into quarters
  • 6 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 125 ml (½ cup) Dijon mustard
  • 60 ml (¼ cup) extra virgin olive oil, as needed
  • 125 ml (½ cup) seasoned breadcrumbs, as needed

  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • 4 sprigs of fresh rosemary


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 F (220 C).
  2. Place the rack of veal on a cutting board. Using a sharp knife, make several incisions in the roast and set aside.
  3. Place the onion, garlic, mustard and oil in a blender. Blend until smooth. Fill the incisions with the mustard mixture and rub the rack of veal with the remaining mixture. Sprinkle with thyme, sea salt and black pepper to taste.
  4. Cover roast with bread crumbs.
  5. Place the roast in a large roasting pan equipped with a wire grill. Roast for 30 minutes in a hot oven to brown the surface. Then reduce oven temperature to 350 F (175 C). Place rosemary sprigs on roast and continue roasting for about 1 hour or until a thermometer registers 130 F (55 C).
  6. Remove from the oven and wrap the meat with aluminum foil and let stand for 20-25 minutes before carving.
