French fries are loved for several reasons. For one, they’re tasty and really cheap! And though the first part stands just as true, debating on the price bit is Serendipity3, the iconic NYC landmark and flagship restaurant with the $200 “Creme de la Creme Pommes Frites.”
The exclusive fries recently set a Guinness World Records for the most expensive french fries. Crafted in celebration of National French Fry Day (July 13), the chips are a work of Chef Joe Calderone, Creative Director of Serendipity3, and Chef Frederick Schoen-Kiewert, Corporate Executive Chef of Serendipity3.
To reach the mind-boggling price tag, the fries are made from Chipperbeck potatoes blanched in Dom Perignon Champagne and J. LeBlanc French Champagne Ardenne Vinegar. They are then cooked three times with pure goose fat from cage-free geese raised in Southwest France.
Further, the luxe chips seasoned with Guerande Truffle Salt, which is hand-harvested from Guerande, France, tossed in Urbani Summer Truffle Oil and topped with shaved Crete Senesi Pecorino Tartufello made of milk from sheep and Black Summer Truffles from Umbria, Italy.
Commenting on it, Creative Director of Serendipity3, Chef Joe Calderone, said, “We are so honored to be recognized by Guinness World Records for our creation of the most expensive French fries, the Creme de la Creme Pommes Frites, and look forward to creating even more over-the-top recipes in the future.”
The $200 “Creme de la Creme Pommes Frites” are available for purchase at the restaurant on advance request.
