Foie Gras now and forever! Eat free or die!

When I initially heard about the Chicago foie gras ban, I was appalled. The nanny state in all its forms disgusts me, but culinary bans on the basis of animal cruelty strike me as simply hypocrisy. The ban is being fought by Chef Didier Durand's Chicago Chefs for Choice. If you are in Chicago check their site for some great events.

Thanks to Steve G. for passing along
"The Goose is Nothing: Fighting Chicago’s Foie Gras Ban." It is a long article worth a good read.

And remember, eat, drink, and be merry for eventually all our gooses will be cooked.
