A Win For Foie Gras

New, 6 comments

Thank the gods of all things fatty, rich and delicious: Chicago has lifted the foie gras ban. Charlie Trotter, whose renouncement of foie spurred the alderman's ordinance, backs away from the failed measure: "I was never in favor of the ban to begin with. I have my own reasons for not serving this product, but don’t get me involved in his mess.” Mayor Richard Daley, who opposed the ban, says the whole argument was a waste of time from the beginning: "This is what government should be doing? Telling you what you should put on toast or on a salad? I mean, think about that." Mmmm....foie on toast...we are. Unfortunately, California is still slated to ban the good stuff by 2012.
