This Japanese chef is charging a lot to serve diners meals made with...dirt.

Would you bother? Not one for novelty, so at the price I'm a no....

Link doesn't work , but that probably doesn't matter much.
Between being a kid and a stint in the Army, I have little interest in eating more dirt.

I think the link needs a ".html" at the end.

Read the article. What I wonder about is the texture. I don't like gritty food, but maybe this dirt consists of mostly organic stuff? In any case, I'm not intrigued with the dirt idea.

Intuitively, it creeps me out. :shock:

I do like stones in my wines, though. :)

Too bad they use only one special soil, there are possibilities for a terroir tasting menu!

yeah, it kind of lends a whole new meaning to "goût de terroir"
