Veal/Trotter pie: braise together or individually?

iancoad | Dec 21, 201108:22 PM

As part of my Christmas dinner I'm making a Veal and Trotter pie w/ chantrelles, swiss chard and carrots (though I may swap the carrots for leeks or something else more fitting).

I don't have a recipe, so I'm rying to work this thing out myself.

I've got a couple of questions.

1. I plan to braise the veal and the trotters. I've found braising methods for both with minor differences. Should I braise them together, or separately?

2. I've been debating over whether to do a wine based braise or a Guiness and Hard Apple Cider braise. I'd think this would work well for the veal, but I've never had Trotters and I'm wondering how the flavors will play.

Comments and suggestions would be appreciated.

Merry Christmas.
