As plant-based diets become more popular across the world, there are a greater number of vegan gourmet dishes being created. 'Gentle Gourmet' in Paris, France is one restaurant that specializes in creating plant-based delicacies, such as its 'Faux Gras,' which serves as a cruelty-free version of the controversial foie gras.
Traditionally, foie gras is made from the liver of a duck or goose that has been fattened in a process that is unnatural and unkind. Gentle Gourmet's interpretation of the luxury dish offers an alternative that involves no animal products, which will appeal to many health-conscious consumers who are looking to reduce their intake of meat.
Other items on Gentle Gourmet's menu include raw desserts, vegan cheese plates and portobello mushroom burgers.
