Opulence reaches zenith as you are served 23K edible gold for a golden anniversary! It may burn a hole in your pocket but it will undeniably soothe your senses. Specially fashioned to commemorate Serendipity’s 50th Anniversary last year, The Grand Opulence Sundae it’s made up of the best of the best. Ice-cream enthusiasts can indulge in this $1,000 ice cream sundae and savour their richness. This pricey sundae is served in a baccarat Harcourt crystal goblet with an 18K gold spoon to partake in the indulgence, served with a petite mother of pearl spoon and topped with a gilded sugar flower by Ron Ben-Israel. No word on whether you get to keep the spoon but if you wanna try fixing up one yourself then here’s the recipe-
5 scoops of the richest Tahitian vanilla bean ice cream infused with Madagascar vanilla are covered in 23K edible gold leaf. The sundae is drizzled with the world’s most expensive chocolate, Amedei Porceleana, and covered with chunks of rare Chuao chocolate. The master-recipe is wrapped up with exotic candied fruits from Paris, gold dragnets, truffles and Marzipan Cherries. It is topped with a tiny glass bowl of Grand Passion Caviar, known for its sparkling golden colour. It’s further with sweetened and infused with fresh passion fruit, orange and Armagnac. Phew….. instead of trying to fix one for yourself, just head for Serendipity and order one as the restaurant reports, they do sell this ultra-expensive ice cream approximately once a month.
