Today marks the penultimate Foie Friday, a day when local restaurants celebrate that most decadent of all luxury ingredients, foie gras. Jason Cichonski of Ela is leading the charge for this new culinary holiday season, which gives a nod to the Cali chefs who will soon lose the right to serve foie gras on their menu as of July 1.

Quite a few local chefs have joined the party already, and there is always room for more. If you would like to participate in Foie Friday, please contact Jason Cichonski via email, or call Ela at (267) 687-8512. For those not listed here, check your Twitter feed for #foiefriday as last minute additions will surely show up. Also, shoot us an email if you want to join the list.
