Chef Alexis Gauthier supports foie gras ban

Chef and restaurateur Alexis Gauthier whose restaurant, Gauthier Soho, used to serve 25kg of foie gras per day, has told Catering Today he is fully behind banning the substance on ethical grounds.

When asked if he would support a ban on foie gras Gauthier replied “of course” saying its production was “so cruel and so silly” and “atrocious”, adding: “I don’t understand why the rest of Europe doesn’t look at it” adding “I know why, its an economic reason”.
