Veal’s versatility makes it exciting to prepare. Veal’s delicate flavor can be developed in countless ways using seasonings and ingredients from the traditional to the innovative. Here are some great ideas from chefs across America:

• Veal chop dusted with spices, kumquat chutney, cauliflower and Madeira jus

• Mongolian, marinated, grilled veal chop with grilled Chinese eggplant and Thai fried rice

• Pine nut and garlic chive crusted veal medallions, Thai basil mashed potato and yin yang mustard sauce

• Rack of veal with rosemary, braised vegetables and mushroom juice
