There's nothing wrong with a little public shaming...

...when it's done for a good cause.

A family member tipped me off to the fact that a number of popular local restaurants were being shamed into dropping foie gras from their menues. You can read about it here.

Needless to say, this came as really good news to me!

Not only is foie gras born of cruelty and (IMHO) kinda gross, it's also sooo eighties! Seriously, it's time for it to take its place in the archives of eighties cuisine alongside quail eggs, cornish hen, tomato aspic, and Black Tower. (I'm suddenly overcome with memories of all those weird foods from my childhood [chef's daughter].)

You can't stop progress!
