Pass Me Another Slice of Seared Patrimony

Just when I was beginning to think there was nothing positive to be said for the government of France (distinct from its people, its art, and its cuisine, you understand) they went and did something good. Behold: Foie gras will soon officially be "part of the cultural and gastronomic patrimony, protected in France."

UPDATE: A Chicago chef gets his restaurant trashed for serving part of France's cultural and gastronomic patrimony. Read about it:"Say Non to Foie Gras Ban, Get Your Restaurant Trashed"
