I agree with the above comment. I have eaten in many top quality eateries all across the world, I am familiar with the creations of almost all of the world's top chefs and I can confirm that this is not the type of dish that is suitable for human consumption. Beef salad? Horseradish or no horseradish this just doesn't work and anyone who eats this clearly has no taste buds!
