GOURMET TRAVEL: Festival Of Foie Gras

  This week, nearly 20 restaurants in Philadelphia will offer foie gras lunch and dinner dishes for only $5 in response to recent pressure by the animal rights group, Hugs for Puppies, to remove the controversial delicacy from menus. The restaurants, working under the umbrella of Chefs for Choice and the Artisan Farmers Alliance, have banded together to support the right to choose what goes on their menus. They assert, “We do not believe that a minority of animal rights zealots should determine the direction of our business. Nor do we want to be intimidated by them at our restaurants or homes. We want the City Council to know that these few do not represent the whole of Philadelphia.” We’re quite excited about this form of protest and would be even more excited if the foie gras stayed so cheap! To read more about foie gras controversies, see our gourmet news from January and May.
