The veal Axoa is a typical Basque recipe (the Basque Country is located in the South West of France). Also called Espelette Axoa, it is a traditional recipe from the South West of France which used to be served on fair days! You will accompany it with a robust wine from the same region such as the Irouleguy AOC or the Madiran AOC. Here is a simple and generic recipe.
