Dan Barbar's Foie Gras Parable. An oldie but a goodie. Just came to my attention again because of the whole "Do or Dine" foie gras doughnut hullabaloo in Brooklyn. I am GLAD that restaurantís owners say they have no plans to alter or eliminate the appetizer. I love foie gras!

"In California, the practice of force-feeding was banned more than 7 years ago, but producers of the delicacy were given a grace period during which they could come up with a more humane way to feed the birds. In fact, the sole producer of foie gras in California endorsed the bill. The grace period is up on June 30. On July 1, it will be illegal in California to sell products that are made as a result of force-feeding animals. ... as the deadline nears, tempers are starting to flare..."

I LOVE Foie Gras! Dan Barber's Foie Gras Parable on Ted.com is a wonderful piece.
