On Foie Gras

I watched an Iron Chef episode that had foie gras as the main theme ingredient for the battle. The dishes were interesting, but I had no idea what foie gras is, or what it tastes like. After the show, I went on Google and saw this site explaining what foie gras is.

People that eat foie gras regularly should be locked up in a cage and force-fed corn for weeks until they keel over. Then offer them another plate of foie gras and see if they enjoy it anymore. That’s basically what foie gras is; enlarged livers from duck and geese that were force-fed corn until they died. Only the French would come up with something as stupid as this. We should dump French wine back on the streets again. If we’re going to eat animals for their meat, we should at least respect them a little more.

    I totally disagree with you on this. As a chef, I prepare foie gras all the time and eat it every chance I get.

    I would assume people like you won’t spend $5,000 or more for a bottle of wine either…
