A friend emailed to alert me that at 3:00 p.m. today, the Chicago City Council voted 36 to 6 to repeal the ban on sales of foie gras in Chicago. I’ll forgo comments on the irony of one of the most forward thinking chef cities in the world having a city council so ill-informed about the farming of livestock in this country that it banned foie gras. Cheers to Chicago for reversing the ban.
