I have to be honest here. I stayed at a French friend's family farm in the countryside - very idyllic. Her Mum used to raise all types of animals for their personal consumption (they were mostly a milk and cheese farm) - including geese for fois gras. Watching that elderly Frenchwoman overfeed the geese had the result of putting me off fois gras for life. Prior to that holiday, about 15+ years ago, I LOVED it!

I am very sorry to admit, but I hate those animal right s people. They will not stop till we all eat only plants and grass. Sorry, not for me. Save the plants! Eat meat!

CharlieD, I've been using my current signature in some form or another for about 10 years now. GMTA!

Honestly, I wish everyone involved with PETA would grow up and smell the coffee. IMHO, they're more of a PITA. What's next, Tyson Chicken? IBP? Wait a minute....doesn't KFC get their chicken from Tyson? If so, then I guess Tyson has already been harrassed after Pam Anderson did that sign.

On the gripping hand, I don't even like liver, much less Fois Gras.

Got to agree with you Allen. Life would not worth living on a vegetarian diet!

I'd have to be really hungry to live on vegies. I just love taste of meat, I can live on meat alone, though it is probably not good for you. Problem is that PITA people are like ... well, "kids" was a very polite comparasing Allen.

I think there is a big difference between eating animals (yum, I do!) and torturing them, then eating them (something I can't support) .

Like Ishbel says ... if you were to see how the fowl is force fed in order to bloat the liver up for foie gras, you, like she and I, may swear off foie gras forever.

They had a special on it on Food TV which was very, very graphic. And sad.

Watching my friend's mother holding the beak closed and stroking the neck of the geese to force down the food.... BLECH

There are not many foods that are on my 'No' list - foie gras and veal are both on it. Haven't eaten veal since I was about 16 and actually learnt how the calves were raised to produce that wonderful meat meant that I was unable to justify my eating it. And I really used to love veal, too

I have long tried only to eat meat raised by Compassionate Farming methods.
