The California Police State: Foie Gras Ban

“Banning Foie Gras laws were not created by a man who has swooped fly French girls.” – MPM

The dish in front of me is devastatingly beautiful: a smattering of translucent, barely green syrup; some bits of slightly more solid orange gelée; dainty grapefruit segments; a soft crumble of pistachio mixed with coriander. Grounding it all is a large, barely pink sphere, a full moon of meat butter sitting regally on the plate.

Its days are numbered. In two weeks, it will be illegal to serve foie gras in California — and this lovely terrine will be off the menu at Mezze, where it’s currently served, its key ingredient banned in restaurants across the city.

The arguments surrounding California’s foie gras ban are clear: On one side, animal activists believe that it’s up to the state to protect the welfare of livestock, and that force-feeding birds to fatten their livers for the sake of a gourmet delicacy crosses a line. On the other, chefs and diners argue that some of the most conscientious small farmers in the country raise these birds; if animal welfare were really a concern, activists and lawmakers would do better to start with the real culprit when it comes to mistreatment: factory farms.

Whatever you believe, the fact remains: On July 1, the production and sale of foie gras will become illegal in California.

We have talked about the banning of Foie Gras before.

This is just another retarded California Police State attack on The International Playboy Lifestyle.

I am basically done with California. It is not the best state for an International Playboy to base himself out of.

The Laws are way too constricting.

My business interests are all getting moved out of state.

Which sucks for California, because my tax money alone probably funds two or three public pensions there.

Besides going for an annual pilgramige to Wild Card Boxing Club, Hollywood, CA you wont be seeing me too much there.

Thankfully, I am in a place right now where I can eat Foie Gras till my heart’s content. And I have been.

In fact, last night I had a fly French girl over and busted out some Foie Gras Burgers.

Illmatic.

    Timely post. I just had some French food on 3rd St. last night, and the waiter told me about the upcoming ban. I added some foie gras on top of my steak, to have some while I still could.

    The California G is an endangered species.

    I agree.

    That piece of Foie Gras does look pretty damn good.

    Further affect of the Cali. foie gras ban – as of at least 4 years ago – there were only 2 US states that had foie gras bird farms – New York and Cali. Given that fresh, non-frozen and non-packed fois gras is the best expression of the delicacy – the effect of the Cali. ban is to shut down half the fois gras production in the United States and all of it on the West Coast –

    Every year in NY a foie gras ban is tabled by the legislature – but gets more press year after year. A ban in NY would shut down all domestic production – you can get it from Canada – but its a tricky item to get through customs because its a meat/agriculture product that can be banned at any time basically.

    Its amazing – California should have an economy the size of France but is broke like Greece – you have areas of California that are as bad as the poorest provinces of Mexico – they are turning the power off in poorer counties – and this is what they focus on.

    Jim Kirk –

    Those are great points.

    Beyond that, the California and NY farms treat ducks very well. Hell, they “overfeed” them.

    Factory farms do far more damage to animals. And the environment. Of course government won’t touch those.

    Small business suffers, big business wins.

    Yeah, it is a little tricky to get in from Canada, I have done it before.

    This could open the doors for a new smuggling scheme though.

    Out of all that shit that California has to worry about, they enact a stupid law like this? No wonder there’s a budget crisis.

    Thank God I don’t live in the USA of 2012. Less freedom than Nazi Germany for their own citizen.

    Bought the last torchon the specialty market had and seared it a couple weeks ago. What a pity.

    Had dinner at a local SD French place last night. Word with the chef is that any place that wants to offer fois will do so by simply not “selling” it.

    Not against the law to serve it…on that brioche you just paid $20 for.

    There are tons of ways around this. Also someone bought the URL FoisFinder, so you see what’s going to happen.
