Vermont Veal Renaissance

Jason Tostrup
Restaurant Verterra and Lucy’s Tavern at the Inn at Weathersfield, Perkinsville, VT

Dairy and Veal Farmer Lisa Kaiman
Jersey Girls Dairy, Chester, VT

When farmer Lisa Kaiman began raising bull calves alongside her dairy cows, her first customer was chef Jason Tostrup of the lovely Inn at Weathersfield. Tostrup is a fervent believer in Kaiman’s conscientious, Old World methods and he has created this spring-inspired New England menu to showcase her flavorful, humanely raised, milk-fed veal.
