Foie Gras Torchon with local Sonoma foie gras ???? Really??? The California foie gras law (California State Senate Bill 1520 of the 2003-2004 legislative session) (SB 1520) is a California State statute enacted in 2004 that prohibits the "force feed[ing of] a bird for the purpose of enlarging the bird's liver beyond normal size" as well as the sale of products that are a result of this process.[1] This outlaws the traditional method of producing foie gras in California. The law will go into effect on July 1, 2012. ** enjoy it while you can - if you can stomach it knowing how it came to be... ** http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_foie_gras_law
