    Veal should be outlawed. It’s the most barbaric, disturbing practice yet here it is posing as a recipe. CBS should do a segment on how this came to be veal…that would be educational for everyone and then they could take this stupid recipe down.

  2. Patty Shenker says:

    Veal isn’t a meal; he’s a baby animal! How sad that you are so backward and unenlightened to still be pushing veal! Julia Childs finally visited a veal farm, at the urging of author John Robbins. She looked around at all the confined baby calves, looked back at John & asked- “Are they all like this?” to which he replied yes. She never cooked or ate veal again. How about seeing a veal farm for yourself? You just may come away as disgusted as Ms. Chef herself! At least, you should!

  3. Kristina Bowman says:

    One would think that with so much information & proof that such horrific cruelty is involved with veal, that people would actually evolve and refuse to serve and/or eat it at all. I am disgusted that your show would downright promote such torture!

  4. kathleen gahles says:

    I haven’t eaten veal in probably 40 years or so and won’t do it now!

  5. Georgette Madak says:

    If CBS believes in comprehensive news coverage, perhaps you will provide a segment on the torturous existence of veal calves – imprisoned in tiny pens that don’t even allow them to turn around or lie down.

  6. Gail Madak says:

    Eating veal is barbaric. The baby animals are horribly abused. Like foie gras and fur, veal should be banned. Featuring veal on Tony’s Table is unconscionable.

  7. Gerie Madak says:

    I cannot believe you are promoting a veal recipe. I turned the channel immediately and may stop watching entirely. Surely you must know that the production of veal involves the torture of innocent animals. I am so very disappointed.
