Tete de Veau is a dish that was exceptionally eaten in Maastricht during Carnival. It can be eaten both warm and cooled. If you wanted to serve it warm at carnival, there was a cooking pot with tete de veau on the back of the kitchen stove. Everyone who came home and felt like it would take some and then go celebrate another time.
