As a state-wide ban on foie gras looms closer in California, chefs and consumers alike are trying to get as much of the French delicacy as they can, including attending foie gras festivals and last dinners.

The ban on its sale, which takes effect on July 1, comes as a result of a controversy over the way it is harvested from ducks and geese.

Foie gras, which means "fatty liver" in French, is produced by force feeding corn to the animals with a tube-like device in order to enlarge their livers.
