    Default cruel foods

    for those of you who still like that tasty foie gras .. why I wont eat it. If the AVMA report on force feeding ducks and geese I posted in the other food thread was not enough ..here. This is NOT an exageration it is how it is done. From a chef.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r-f3krkSpZg

    Oh man, I had the most amazing foie gras at Au Pied de Cochon earlier this month. The restaurant specializes in it, and was featured on Bourdain's "No Reservations":

    Uhhh, I normally try not to be cruel. I buy free-range eggs and local happily pastured grass-fed beef from the farmer's market. But, um. Delicious.
