Foodies mourn California's ban on shark fin soup [Ted Rall cartoon]
Gov. Jerry Brown banned the possession and sale of shark fins last week, giving cartoonist Ted Rall something tasty to chew on for this week's installment. What weird culinary find will foodies glom onto next -- harp-seal cutlet?
In all seriousness though, the news must have been a delight to Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic -- and ultimate foodie -- Jonathan Gold, who wrote in favor of the ban in an April 7 Op-Ed. Here's the piece, in case you missed it: "The taste of extinction."
