Top restaurant in veal controversy


Ecostorm, working with Compassion in World Farming, recently carried out investigations across the UK and Holland to reveal where some of the country’s top hotels and restaurants source their veal from – and established that the double Michelin-starred Espelette restaurant at The Connaught hotel was offering controversial Dutch veal while waiters claimed the meat was British. Dutch veal is controversial as it frequently involves rearing techniques described by campaigners as “cruel and unnecessary” and outlawed in the UK.
