Moss, lichen and bone marrow are among the dishes on offer at the world's best restaurant, it has been revealed.
The Noma restaurant in Denmark, run by chef Rene Redzepi, has topped the S Pellegrino World's 50 Best Restaurants list for the second year running.
The list, billed as the 'Oscars' of the restaurant world, also features Heston Blumenthal's restaurant in Bray, Berkshire.
The Fat Duck, famed for its mustard ice cream and snail porridge, dropped two places to number five.
Food lovers keen to sample the world's best dishes might need to consider taking out a

Closer to home, The Ledbury in Notting Hill, West London, run by Australian Brett Graham, is the highest new entry at number 34.
Claude Bosi's Hibiscus, Mayfair, central London, was ranked at 43, up six on last year, and Fergus Henderson's St John, central London, was ranked at 41, up two places.
Spanish restaurants El Celler de Can Roca and Mugaritz were ranked second and third in the world.
