Thanks to Max, the Snook and I are now debating the ethics of foie gras (as defended by Jeffrey Steingarten). We’re definitely in the “eat it in small portions” camp. Hey, I’ve got friends who are vegans and pescavores, and I admire them all… but I’m an omnivore, and meat is so good. (The Snook prepared a chateaubriand this week that made me weak in the knees.) Of course, if Sakai-san ever sat a dish down in front of me with an inch-thick slap of foie gras on top, I’d be ALL OVER IT.
