On July 1st, the ban on foie gras went into effect in California.
Unfortunately for me, I only discovered my total and complete love for foie gras a few months ago. The first time I bit into a foie gras torchon my world was rocked.
After only being able to enjoy the mouth watering delicacy that is foie gras for a couple of months, the time has come to bid it adieu.
In honor of it’s California death I wrote a haiku:
Orgasmic foie gras
I think of you and I drool
RIP my love
The last foie gras I may ever have in California.
(for an educating and well-written exploration into the facts behind foie gras, I’d suggest reading Claudia’s post over on Tasty Bits)
