As mentioned yesterday, hot shot chefs like Vinny Dotolo and Ludo Lefebvre are using their clout to protest California's July 1 foie gras ban, and now they're putting on a foie gras-filled dinner to bring attention to their cause.
On May 14, the Coalition for Humane and Ethical Farming Standards will be hosting a six-course foie gras tasting menu at Los Angeles restaurants Mélisse, The Royce at The Langham, Lemon Moon, and Animal.
The tasting menus ($200 per person, or $150 at Lemon Moon), will reportedly feature dishes like foie gras tortellini, poached foie gras, and foie gras sauté. Proceeds will go towards the coalition, which is pushing for changes in the ban and calling for new rules to feed duck and geese that will allow foie gras production in a non-cruel manner.
Tickets are available at eventbrite.com if you support their cause and love foie gras.
