The Golden Feast

I was reading today's Express, a publication of the Washington Post, and this news item caught my attention:

A Hanoi, Vietnam, restaurant has been ordered to stop putting gold in its meals until authorities test the metal's purity and consult with experts about potential health risks. The Kim Ngan Ngu Thien, or " Golden Feast", restaurant opened in January, offering dishes mixed with small amounts of gold, which it claimed enhances the food's nutritional value. Gold isn't a government-approved spice or food additive.

On another subject I watched two days ago a documentary on a french TV channel about a group of laotians who live in such a miserable life that they couldn't find something to eat but grass leaves!
