This video by the Perennial Plate
folks about raising geese for their livers is so beautiful it nearly brought me to tears, to hear this Spanish farmer talk about his Geese (Foie comes from either Geese or Ducks these look like Geese to me, if someone can give me an ID on this birds please do so in the comments) and how he raises them and loves them and even how they meet their last moments on this earth makes you realize that when you do something with compassion makes all the difference.
By comparison I posted a video Anthony Bourdain did years ago that talked the same topic and at the time I thought it showed a humane way of going about it, but after seeing this video you realize how there are levels of humanity and this guy wins hands down. Still if you live in NYC D’Artagnan is certainly the best purveyors of duck products and foie gras….and a lot of other delicious food products as well!
Would love to hear your thoughts on this often controversial subject.
