“Foie Gras” even the name sounds as though its left the french countryside for the weekend and taken a trip up the Chemin de Vézelay, it might even sojourn in Paris for a day or two until reaches the northern border, but sadly, the french delicacy is not as pleasant as its flowery title. Foie Gras, the pinnacle of french cuisine for over 3,000 years, has remained the status quo of luxury as well as many rendezvous, adorning the banquets of many socialites and even gracing the laminate table tops of american housewives. Foie Gras is french for “fat liver”,usually of a duck or goose, that has been loaded with fats and starches to create the biggest, buttery of livers. It is then seared or used as a pate, and sometimes at the most…

Why did we have the Mission Carnival? Why right before Lent and on Mardi Gras?
According to historians this celebration is dated back thousands of years ago to pagan celebrations of spring and fertility. Also including the raucous Roman festivals of Saturnalia and Lupercalia and when Christianity moved in to that area When Christianity arrived in Rome religious leaders decided to merge these popular local traditions into the new faith an easier task than abolishing them altogether. As a result the excess and debauchery of the Mardi Gras season became a prelude to Lent the…

This party reminds me of the Krewe of Yuga (Brief History of Gay). The Krewe of Yuga was the first major gay Krewe in New Orleans. It was founded in the late 1950s, and they were forced to keep things private. The parties they had were mostly hosted in private homes of members (LGBT Mardi Gras). Much like how Dorian’s party was at his own home.
The Krewe of Yuga’s first public ball was shut down by police before it could even get started. This…
Inhumane Food: The Fight Against Foie Gras
Foie gras was a foreign concept to me until I went to dinner at the Easter Standard in Kenmore Square and my date was enthused that it was on the menu.

It could be assumed that the foie gras market is a perfectly competitive one (Figure 1). This is because there are many buyers and sellers, there…
I personally did not like the vegan day because I can’t live without eating meat. Meat Eaters day was my day. I was a team with Han, Casey and Ori. I had two of troublemakers at the same time. They kept arguing each other about their ideas. Han and I basically followed whatever they wanted to avoid any argument. The presentation was pretty, but each of the components did not actually go well together. It did not build up any flavors into layers. Simple and boring. Once again, they should respect…
and hormones added to the meat. This method of farming was designed by the food corporations to maximize the amount of animals produced at the lowest cost. For example, Chickens are raised in these large metal tubular buildings. These buildings are windowless and can hold up to ten thousand chickens. The chickens are crammed into the space with no space to wander about. Also because of the food industry, the chicken is genetically modified to have bigger breast and thighs so the company can sell…
