Award-Winning French Chef Denounces Foie Gras
Not too long ago, Trish Deseine was pushing for people to embrace the taste of foie gras served with dried fruit. (Did anyone else just throw up a little?)
But after taking the time to visit a foie gras farm, this chef changed her tune.
“You see ducks who have lived outside then put in small crates … and force fed,” she told The Guardian. “They can’t stand up or move. You can see their livers bursting out of their skin. Nobody can tell me that’s not cruel.”
And for anyone who tries to tell you it’s not, *cough* Olivier Berté *cough*, I have a suggestion. How about volunteering yourself to have a metal piped forced down your throat and then have 20 to 30 percent of your body weight in food shoveled into your body two to three times a day?
Yeah, I didn’t think so.
