They say veal are baby cows that still consume only their mother's milk. A bit sad, but I love beef and I was hungry. It's a bit sick to think that baby cows are being killed for food, but they do have the most amazing flavour and texture. What does it say about me that cooking veal gives me a lot of pleasure?
I can't stop thinking about that hunk of seared veal I had in Paris, at Philou. I kind of lost it a bit when I saw these veal rib steaks, amazingly pink and lean. Seared hard, kept raw in the middle - perfect in texture and flavour.
I raise a glass to that baby cow that gave its life for a good meal.
