The Wasp - Order of the boot

comp_waspJust heard that a Danish restaurant has been voted the world's top eaterie. Amongst other offerings they serve carrots with the soil still on them so that "you can reconnect with the earth". I know exactly where my boot would reconnect given half the chance. What absurdly pretentious twaddle. Glad to hear that Heston B is still up there. He's a genuine English eccentric in love with the theatre of food and I doubt whether he could even spell the word pretension.

    Edible soil sound fun not pretentious. I read that as well as carrots they serve radishes in "soil" in a terracotta pot. This is just the sort of thing I've seen on Blumenthal's feasts.

    Even more pretentious then.

    Hey! That's not real soil under those carrots. It's made with hazelnuts, malt and beer. Same sort of thing that Heston does... Apology due to Rene of Noma?
