Here's an essay contest you can really sink your teeth into, even if you haven't written one since you applied to college. Napa restaurant La Toque is hosting a lunch called "The State of Foie Gras" next month to commemorate the two-year anniversary of the ban on foie, reports Inside Scoop. And you're invited, provided you write one of the 25 winning essays on "Why California's Foie Gras Ban is Foolish."
You can pen your ode to the good stuff (100 words or less) on the restaurant's Facebook page or send directly to firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to keep your ardor a secret.
The lunch is July 5, and its 25 lucky winners will be chosen by owner Ken Frank on July 1. And in case you're worried, the multi-course, foie-centric meal is legal -- you won't be buying the banned liver, see -- and will be cooked by chef luminaries from around the Bay Area.
