They are considered culinary delicacies by many. However veal and foie gras are two of the cruelest dishes ever dreamt up by the Italian and French.
Veal attracts criticism for methods used to rear the young calves, such as the 'growing stall', a form of housing which limits the animals' muscle development for more tender meat. Foie gras is made from the liver of a goose or duck that has been especially fattened through force-feeding.
The Girls Gone Green would like to see an end to both of these dishes in Northeast Florida. Our position is to not promote on VegJax.com any restaurant that continues to serve such cruel options. We hope that will help encourage restaurants to find alternatives to these foods.
