Top Chefs Try to Head Off Foie Gras Ban

Hosted by

Some of California's best-known chefs are lobbying to repeal a ban on foie gras, produced by force-feeding geese and ducks to enlarge their livers. The ban provided seven years for development of more humane means of production, and it's scheduled to take effect on July 1. We hear about animal rights versus haute cuisine. Also, forget Dodger Stadium, the Getty and the Hollywood Bowl. On this May Day, we look at Los Angeles landmarks from a Left-of-Center point of view. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, is Congress as bad as it looks…or worse?
