Foie gras is on the menu tonight at Providence and animal rights activists are planning to protest, according to the LA Times.

Providence is hosting tonight's fundraiser for the Bocuse d'Or USA Foundation, an organization that preps and sends the American team to compete in the Bocuse d'Or, a famed international culinary competition named after chef Paul Bocuse. Several celebrated LA chefs will be on hand tonight to offer their interpretation of signature Bocuse dishes and Animal Protection & Rescue League advocates are none too happy that foie gras will make not one, but two appearances on the multi-course menu.

What are the offending dishes?
