 I did some research on Florentine, and decided there is no one recipe to follow,
so I`ll give you my version. The florentine part of tne recipe is basically a bed
of spinach. The meat is varied, such as fried fish, veal cutlets, sliced steak.
pork cutlets, chicken cutlets. Use your imagination.
   Wash and cook the spinach in a small amount of water. Drain well (squeeze with
 hands when cool enough), chop coarsely. In a large pan melt butter in olive oil
 and when hot add spinach and fry lightly. Season with salt, pepper, + nutmeg.
 Sprinkle in the flour, add the warm milk and stir. Simmer for a few minutes.
 Transfer to a baking dish and keep warm in oven. Prepare meat or fish. When
 ready top the spinach with the meat and serve hot.
