foie gras banned! The Nerve!
Hmmmppphhh. See if I EVER go to Chicago again!
Chicago has banned the sale of foie gras in its restaurants because city officials think the French delicacy is cruel to ducks and geese.Under a city ordinance the ban will be imposed by September. Fines will range from 250 to 500 dollars for every day that a restaurant is caught serving the dish.
"It's terrible!" chef Didier Durand, proprietor of Cyrano's Bistro and a spokesman for the Illinois Restaurant Association, told AFP.
"In Chicago they banned smoking (in restaurants) now foie gras - what's next? Sex?"
