Seed Kitchen owner and chef Eric Lechasseur just scored second place from PETA in the animal rights group’s “Fine Faux Foie Gras” competition. His pan-fried vegan pate is served on olive oil-infused ciabatta with blackberry port wine sauce and goes easy on both goose and human livers. The chef wins $1,000 in cooking equipment and is putting the faux foie on the menu at his Venice cafe if you dare to dream of guilt-free foie gras. [Seed Kitchen]
