Re: ETHICS

Susan, you quack me up.


What's the difference between a duck with one wing and a duck with two wings?

A difference of a pinion


Moving right along ...

sadie-hoshi:  Foie gras can be made from either duck or goose.  I've not had a chance to try the goose one - yet.

Re: ETHICS

Don't believe everything you read in the papers Susan...

We don't serve foie gras in any of Jamie's 15 restaurants - not because we don't approve of it, but because it doesn't really fit with the style of cooking we do. It's more the kind of thing used in fancy French Michelin star places really..

My point about intensive chicken production was that a lot of people get hysterical about foie gras when they tuck into intensively reared chicken products every day without stopping to think for a second how they're produced. You've said you don't do that, and I accept that of course, but many do.

Artisan foie gras production is light years less cruel that intensive chicken production, I know as I have seen both. The birds aren't stuffed, they're simply fed 'til they're full several times a day - they even wait outside the shed when it's time for their next feed. Their livers do swell, but this is actually natural for ducks and geese when they feed themselves up before a long migratory flight.

I think inhumane rearing of any animal should be opposed, why single out foie gras?

Re: ETHICS

Thanks Pete for your friendly comments. 

However, please now unsubscribe me from this site.  I asked a genuine question in all good faith and don't expect to be called sanctimonious by Mrs. A in North Carolina, or a bit of a goose by another subscriber which achieves nothing.  Thanks to those who did comment constructively though.

Re: ETHICS

Wow!  North Carolina (Hey Ann! xx) - that's news to me, SUSAN.  Perhaps you should spend a bit more time paying attention; then, conceivably, you wouldn't find yourself in such a precarious situation.  Just food for thought, my darling, SUSAN BROXTON.

Re: ETHICS

Susan - no need to "unsubscribe" all you need to do is to never visit the site again - which is probably a good idea.
