Chicago: feast on foie gras!

posted at 20:42 GMT by T.Whid in /news/twhid

The evil Chicago foie gras ban has been overturned!

I only mention it now as it’s been discussed here before.

The thing that really irritates me about these foie gras bans is that the true food demons in our culture — large factory farms — have too much clout for animal activists to have any affect. So they end up picking on small, artisanal farmers creating a relatively rare delicacy.

M.River adds = Here is a NYT article on the “artisanal farmers” of foie gras - No Days Off at Foie Gras Farm.
