California eatery marks fois gras ban with free pate portions

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 06/25/2014 - 05:36
By Madeleine Thomas SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - In a special offer to wistful diners on the two-year anniversary of California’s foie gras ban, a Napa Valley restaurant plans to serve up the culinary delicacy to a select number of its patrons next month – for free. Production and commercial sales of foie gras, a pate dish made from the enlarged, fatty liver of a force-fed goose or duck, became illegal in California in July 2012 under a law enacted eight years earlier by the state legislature. Yet a handful of chefs, including Ken Frank, executive chef and owner of La Toque in Napa Valley, have bypassed the ban by simply giving away plates of foie gras to customers at their restaurants instead of selling it. On July 5, Frank said he plans to continue his act of culinary civil disobedience by hosting a free foie gras-centric lunch at his restaurant titled, “The State of Foie Gras.” Frank said California law does not prohibit transportation of foie gras into the state, and it remains readily available from producers elsewhere across the country and in Canada.

When Artists Come into The Fold

E-Town - Wed, 06/25/2014 - 05:04
It’s funny. I used to think I knew everything there was to know about music. I’d somehow end up catching on to up-and-coming bands before many of my peers, and have the bragging rights of seeing them in very small venues – “before they were cool,” as they say. When I was younger I saw […]
