Foie Gras: Another View
While I find many animals delicious, I have always been averse to inhumane treatment of said animals as they are raised for food. Foie Gras was something that seemed to be a moral absolute for many who oppose animal cruelty. On its face, it does appear to be pretty terrible: force feeding ducks until their liver swells to a very large size and is high in fat content. If you want to see what it looks like, check out the original Iron Chef (or look it up on the internet, but that's much less fun). While I'll probably not be trying this delicacy anytime soon (it's usually quite expensive), here's another view from the Spectator.
