Yes, you heard right. We’re on the prowl for chefs who can make a mean foie gras … but not “mean” as in prepared with the diseased, fatty livers of ducks and geese. No, no, we want to find someone clever to create a delicious cruelty-free delicacy. And we know that there’s a chef out there with the capability to create a perfect, humane alternative to foie gras.

So, we’re hosting a contest to find one!

For PETA’s Fine Faux Foie Gras challenge, the winning chef must create a purely vegetarian foie gras that must be almost indistinguishable in taste and texture from the real thing. The grand prize winner will win a $10,000 prize and two runners-up will each receive $1,000 worth of professional kitchen equipment.

Good luck, and bon appétit.
