Have you heard of or tried foie gras? I've heard of it but never tried it. For me it's in the same categories as caviar and veal. Like caviar, even if I wanted to try it, it's too far out of my price range and like veal, it's produced in a manner that makes it altogether unappealing to me.
Watch this video - it's inspiring. The history of foie gras is interesting, the seasonal aspect of humanely produced foie gras is common sense, and the way the farmer produces the desirable yellow liver is brilliant and even a bit funny. If you're into local, sustainable, seasonal or humane food, you'll love this video. If you're into innovative farmers, you'll love this video. If you're into learning new things, you'll love the website.
I'm used to sharing TED videos on my other blog. I now have a short list of ones to share on this blog. The fact that there's even a short list of talks given on these subjects at such prestigious events is encouraging, don't you think?
