What Is Veal?

Do You Eat Veal?

At the Food & Wine Classic last weekend in Aspen, I attended a lunch that was hosted by Stella Artois and cooked by Top Chef All-Stars champ Richard Blais. One of the best dishes was the final course: crispy veal cutlets with pickled cherry tomatoes, pine nuts, and buttermilk dressing. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the tender, succulent veal, which is a cut of meat that comes from younger cows. While I eat lamb all the time, I rarely eat veal, but after tasting Blais's cutlets, I might start ordering it more. They were awesome! How about you?

i don't (i'm a veggie but i'm against the idea of veal now anyway).....but thinking back i feel like we did eat veal when i was a kid - which is surprising since it's always been a bit pricier and we didn't have the $$ to have things like that.

Although I don't mind free-raised veal, I just prefer meat with a gamier more robust flavour. I think cuisines that value veal a lot (Italian, French etc) do so because it's a good carrier for delicate sauces.

I don't feel right eating animals in general, besides the fact that meat tastes so gross and has an even worse texture.

Not a fan of meat in general. I don't like it, so I don't eat it! I know a lot of people feel worse eating a baby animal than the full grown one, but to me that seems kind of silly...

A good Italian veal stew with crusty bread can make me a very, very happy fuzzles.
