Veal liver is always treated as such a snobbish and urbane dish, the staple of classic French restaurants. When we visited a farmer who reared his cattle in the mountains and forest of eastern Norway, I wanted to try something different: To pair the liver with flavors of that environment. I made my own heather oil by adding blooming heather to neutral vegetable oil. After a few days the flavor is amazing. You can also use herb flowers, like sage and chives. The result is different, but delicious nonetheless.
