Foie+Short Rib at Break of Dawn=Breakfast of Champions

Categories: News

Haven Gastropub Chef Greg Daniels is undoubtedly Orange County's champion of foie gras, hosting a "Fight for Foie" dinner last night in the face of protestors and even heading to Sacramento to lobby lawmakers in support of the luscious liver. 

While he's not on the front lines, Weekly favorite Dee Nguyen of Break of Dawn is doing what he can to honor the ingredient before it's scratched from California's restaurant menus on July 1. 
Until that day, he'll be offering a 2.4 oz. slab of the stuff atop his most decadent dish, the beef short ribs--a 14-hour braised hunk of beef with mushroom ragu, prickly ash pepper jus and a merlot poached egg. 

The $17 plate gets the ultimate upgrade for $6. As Dee put it: "Foie in your short ribs. Breakfast of champions!"

@ BuggleB - Have fun getting that through customs and by the customs dogs....


My understanding is that the law prohibits producing and selling of foie gras. I did not see anything that made it illegal to import for personal use/consumption. That is, I would still be able to haul back a suitcase of foie gras from France if I'm going to eat it for personal consumption only.  Can someone confirm if my understanding is correct? If so, then I know where I'm going on my next trip...


I think the the whole "I am cool cause I make/eat Foie" is going the way of "I am cool cause i love bacon in doughnuts. ice cream"..kinda played out.
