We visited one of the last foie gras farms in the US to see how the dish went from luxury to controversy


Foie gras used to be one of the most luxurious items on menus. But producing it is illegal in several countries, and soon restaurants in New York City won't be allowed to serve it. We visited one of the last foie gras farms in the US to see what's next for this controversial dish.

EDITOR'S NOTE: In a previous version of this video, farmer Marcus Henley said the ducklings "double in weight every day for about twenty days," but in fact the ducklings double in weight roughly every three days: A previous version of this video also excluded the Sinai Peninsula from a map of Egypt. We corrected the map to include the Sinai Peninsula within Egypt's borders.
