The Cruelty of Foie Gras
I've tried it and I must say the taste is heavenly.. but since I found out how cruel it is some 2 to 3 years ago, I've stopped eating it, alongside with sharks' fin .. but only a video can let us see what the fuss is all about.. nonetheless, there is now "ethical foie gras"..
Synopsis of Video: Most people that have a problem with foie gras, have a problem with the way the French force-feed their goose. There is good news though. What’s really pissed the French off, is that Spanish producers of foie gras have won the prestigious medal for innovation at the Paris international food salon for their product, an ethical version of foie gras. It’s supposed to have all the yummy goodness, without the force-feeding cruelness. According to Gordon Ramsay, there is still a big difference in taste, and he will continue to use ‘real’ foie gras in his restaurants instead of the ethical foie gras made by Patería de Sousa.
