Beat Babe: Au Revoir, Foie Gras

As you may or may not know, the California ban on foie gras goes into effect July 1. I’m not one to lament foods, particularly something of which the French to English translation is “fat liver,” but my formerly plump, 13 year old self has a lot of feelings about this passing.

 

Foie

I am young.

You are old.

You made me fat.

How could I still love you?

We had to part.

The days of puff pastry

The days of pasta

The days of crème fraiche

O

R

The years have passed.

I’ve turned to salad.

But

Our love still lingers in the back of my mind.

We’ll always have Paris.

But

You’re fat.

So we will have nothing.

Adieu pour toujours.

LOVE YOU. MEAN IT.
