A Stir The Pots Post


by | Dec 19, 2019 | Food

Once again, the Big Apple is attempting to ban foie gras. The villains (or heroes, depending on perspective) are the folks at the  New York City Council, inspired by the Animal Welfare Protection Agency. Humanistically, I’m in agreement, as the feeding (gavage) is cruel to ducks. As a chef, I’m a bit disappointed. Meanwhile, my boss who is a perpetual whiner about “the lousy Democrats” actually has my sympathy on this recent ruling impacting an ancient delicacy. I ordered two grade-A lobes to turn into a “torchon.” Now karma will probably lead to my reincarnation as a duck, one of the many animals I’ve cruelly butchered by fire or by blade.  Maybe my boss will turn into a lobster.
