Foie gras ban

What should be a cause of pride, for the cruelty involved in producing it, has instead drawn so much attention that the Illinois Restaurant Association and Allen’s Café filed a lawsuit claiming that the ban violates the state constitution, supported by the Chicago Chefs for Choice and the Artisan Farmers Alliance.

Even a few chefs said they will serve foie gras for free and charge for the accompanying dishes.
