Bones. Head. There’s a time, place, and recipe for everything. When you use all the special bits, you are honoring the life of the animal, helping protect the environment, and further supporting local ranchers. A win in our book!
Instagram post 2115019473786633017_654704407 The always talented @davidnayfeld has done it again! This #rossottiranch veal chop and veal strip loin dish looks like a piece of edible art. ♥️💚 Our wholesale customers like @chefico purchase our veal by the whole animal, so dishes like these are always in limited quality. Make sure to follow them if you want to be alerted to specials like this one!

Instagram post 2110004143837200334_654704407 What’s your favorite hot weather food? We love using goat meat to make these goat carnitas tacos! Paired with a little salsa from our garden tomatoes, maybe an ice cold beer or margarita? That’s a sustainable summer supper we can get behind!

Instagram post 2105651194893808567_654704407 Did you know that Rossotti Ranch represents nine generations of west Marin ranching heritage? We’ve been a part of this community since before we were born, and our goal is to help preserve the ranching tradition and the environment for the community long after we are gone. 🧡
Instagram post 2103131295612980988_654704407 As small, ranch-to-table producers, farmer’s markets are vital to the health of our business. Being at the market every week gives us a chance to answer questions about our ranching practices, give cooking advice for different cuts of meat, and lets us meet some of our loyal customers! If you’d like to read some of our favorite tips on how to make the most of your market visit, click through the link in our profile to check out a blog post we wrote about it. Then come on down to the Marin Civic Center Farmer‘s Market this morning and say hi! (And yes, this is a non-photoshopped image of Julie chatting it up at the Point Reyes Farmers Market with Prince Charles and Camilla a few years back!)

Instagram post 2100582659452799553_654704407 Rack of veal is a celebration. We tend to cook it more in winter, when there’s always another holiday or festive gathering around the corner. But did you know that it is supremely delicious when grilled as well? That puts this cut of veal firmly in the Elegant BBQ category (Is that a thing? It should be a thing.) Paired with a juicy tomato-basil-burrata salad and some grilled summer squash, and you’ve got a truly lovely summer dinner party! (📷: @pbondick)
Instagram post 2098077349353632044_654704407 Hope you are all enjoying this brilliant summer weather! We’re at the farmer’s market this morning, but if you don’t get a chance to visit us, our online shop, Grotto Rossotti, is always open! 🌞
Instagram post 2097674674736934575_654704407 We’ll see you tomorrow morning with allll your favorite cuts of veal, PLUS fresh chickens! Our birds are incredibly delicious— juicy and succulent! They lead honest-to-goodness pasture raised lives and get to forage for bugs and other goodies in the fields. This makes for a happier chicken that is far more flavorful than your average bird, one that is better for the environment, and healthier to boot! We hope to see you tomorrow morning— it looks like it will be a stunningly beautiful day. 🌞🐓🐂🧡

Instagram post 2091878780988885576_654704407 Animals raised on pasture instead of in a feedlot are happier and healthier. They are also better for the environment— they help keep keep native grasses in check. All that fresh air and sunshine also has the wonderful effect of making the meat taste incredibly flavorful and delicious! We love what we do and are so happy to be able to provide this amazing life for our cows. 🧡
Instagram post 2090438457943874086_654704407 Ok, we see you, #nationalhotdogday, and while we appreciate a good dog as much as anyone, we tend to prefer a juicy and complexly flavored veal or goat sausage most nights! We’ve usually got a variety available for sale at the farmer’s market, and they are *perfect* for the grill. Or, if you want to get a little fancy, we have a recipe up on our site that details our favorite method of braising our sausages in a rich wine sauce! Link is up in our bio if you’d like to check it out! 🔥👩‍🍳👨‍🍳🥂
Instagram post 2087906096294897133_654704407 Ground veal is your secret weapon when you are looking for something flavorful, healthy, fast, economical, humanely raised, and just plain delicious for dinner. Grill juicy burgers, braise some bolognese, bake a tender meatloaf, or fry up some perfect little meatballs— the possibilities are truly endless! Order some online at our webshop, Grotto Rossotti, or drop by the Marin Civic Center Farmer‘s Market to stock up! (Veal bolognese 📷: @stonerootfieldandsea 🙌)
