On today's show (broadcast from Montreal), we hosted a panel on Quebec food culture with two of Montreal's finest chefs -- Graziella Battista of Restaurant Graziella, and Chuck Hughes of Garde Manger.
While some have come down on the eating of foie gras (because the way the ducks and geese are force fed to fatten their livers), Quebecers seem more comfortable with a wide variety of meats (such as horse and seal meat and fois gras) than other provinces. As Graziella says, "fois gras is something we eat in Quebec without a problem".
Would you like to see foie gras, seal and horsemeat on more menus across Canada? Or is the pressure to avoid things like foie gras a positive development?
