Chicago Bids Adieu to Foie Gras Party

Photo by The Chopping BlockMaybe it’s my meager salary or my general squeamishness when it comes to meat (especially squishy inner organ-y parts of the animal) but not once have I tasted foie gras. My time to taste it, in Chicago at least, is running out and this Friday, July 28, Lee Anne Wong, a former contestant on Top Chef, is coming to Chicago for the Chicago Bids Adieu to Foie Gras Party at The Chopping Block.

I must admit I’m curious about the fancy pants cooking lesson (foie gras french toast with vanilla bourbon bacon and a fried quail egg, anyone?) and checking out the foie gras foodies but the real lure, for me, would be the chance to chat with Ms. Wong, my personal favorite on the show.

I know a few restaurants in Chicago are hosting foie gras blow outs before the ban. Anyone planning on attending? Sad to see foie gras go? Think the ban is a silly waste of energy better used elsewhere?

    I’ll be mourning the loss of foie. I have only had it on a couple occassions, but it is quite a tasty little scooby snack. I think the legislation is ridiculous, and a horribly slippery slope.

    Yeah, it’s very disturbing that *Aldermen* are trying to pass *moral* legislation. I mean, really… they aren’t fooling anybody.
