Have you tried our exclusive French veal yet? This is a perfect time! Because it is lighter than beef but heartier than chicken and pork, veal is a good choice for seasonal transitions (even though we like it any time of the year).
We’re excited about our new veal, which comes from a cooperative of small-scale veal farms in Southwest France. The Charolais and Limousin breeds of cattle, known for meat, not dairy, are specifically raised for the fine meat they produce. The veal calves are given mother’s milk for two weeks and then weaned onto a milk formula diet. Arguably the most humane veal in the world today, it is only available in the U.S. at D’Artagnan.

A good measure of cream and bleu cheese create a velvety sauce that feels indulgent but comes together in minutes. This preparation is equally delicious with pork chops or boneless rabbit loins.
