>> for those that crave the ultimate organic dining experience, how about the soup of the soil? one of japan's top restaurants now serving high end dirt soup. yeah, well, the chef apparently chopped up burdock root in a pan with purified dirt and then strains the mixture. i'm thinking an earthy taste there. that looks gross. purified dirt. is there such a thing?
