Sure, Milan is the fashion capital of the world, but the Milanese also know how to eat! Case in point: Osso Buco, a Northern Italian classic. Our lovely version doesn’t stray too far from the original with fluffy polenta, tender sous-vide pork shank, and a hearty ragout of tomatoes, basil, and garlic. The result is an impressive dinner that looks as beautiful as it is delicious.
