Soil Mode-Elaine InghamThe Soil Food Web was created by Dr. Elaine Ingham, who was my guest on last week's show.  If you missed the broadcast, I'll put a link to it in the next post.  It's critical that everyone understands the need to respect the soil on this planet.

Beer Can Quail-Hole in the WallHole in the Wall dessertHole in the Wall in Des Moines (1501 Grand) is one of my favorite spots anywhere to enjoy a meal full of unexpected tastes and varied textures.  It was fun to talk last week with the genius behind the always-changing menu, Zach Gutweiler, and savor every bite of his beer can quail, two kinds of Chinese buns, asparagus, brussels sprouts with vegan chorizo, and his take on the classic fudgsicle.  Plan your trip to coincide with when he opens at 6:30 pm.  He's even enhanced the Hole in the Wall dining experience by adding TV trays to go along with the plastic chairs!
