Veal is a delicacy enjoyed and prized in the European cuisines with traditional dishes such as blanquette de veal in France, Wiener schnitzel from Austria and saltimbocca in Italy or even osso-bucco.
While Veal breeds are not referenced as such, it is very common to find references such as Milk-Fed Veal and Grass-Fed Veal.
A Milk-Fed Veal is a calf that has grown feeding only on Milk while and produce a ‘pink’ coloured meat with low flavours. While a Grass-Fed Veal is a slightly older calf that started feeding from pastures, the meat texture is slightly more firm, has a darker ‘pink’ colour and a more beefy taste.
They both remain succulent!
