This is maybe only relevant for the Dutch readers out there, but somewhere in 2009 I watched Dan Barber’s foie gras parable at ted.com. Its topic was about a Spanish farmer who found a more natural way of creating foie gras – a food that is mainly known for its inhumane production.
As my mother likes the food and is also aware of the problems associated with it, I sent her a link to the video. But sadly, the level of English required to follow it proper was just too much for her. So, when I noticed ted.com was looking for translators, I jumped in and created a Dutch translation. The result of which you can view here at your own leisure. (I’d recommend it even if you aren’t Dutch.)
Many thanks to Maarten Hofman for reviewing the translation.
