EDIBLE GOLD (tasty pictures)

Post  nero_design on Wed May 16, 2018 9:32 pm

There's quite a multitude of food offerings coated in real gold these days as the trend of gold continues throughout the world's food establishments.  I thought some of the prospectors here might appreciate the eye-watering mouth-watering applications on offer ...  I know I'm drooling at those Chicken Wings... Since gold has no taste and no nutritional value, I'm wondering if anyone here has tried it? (Other than trying to clean a golden nugget from the dirt in your mouth).


The Burg-Khalifa at The Roadery.  

A restaurant in Chelsea has found a not-so-novel way to celebrate excess: by claiming to have created the world’s most expensive burger, embellished with gold leaf, lobster and caviar.

Priced at £1,100 (or £1237.50 with service), the burger took three weeks to develop and has been verified by Record Setter as the highest priced in the world, with each of the 14 listed ingredients - including salt and mayonnaise - costing around £78.50 each.

Honky Tonk restaurant in Chelsea, west London, added a multitude of expensive ingredients to the dish, christened ‘The Glamburger’, in order to justify the eye-watering price.

The meat itself consists of 220g of Kobe wagyu beef, minced with 60g of New Zealand venison to “balance the fat content”. At the centre is a black truffle Brie that will create a “liquid pocket” once it has been cooked. If that doesn’t sound like enough, the patty has been seasoned with Himalayan salt, served with a Canadian lobster poached in Iranian saffron.

Topping the meat is more meat: bacon coated with maple syrup, along with beluga caviar and a hickory smoked duck egg covered in gold leaf. The bun is seasoned with Japanese matcha, which is a kind of powdered green tea, and mayonnaise, and then also coated in gold leaf. The garnish is a mango and champagne jus with grated white truffle. The combination adds up to a total of 2,618 calories: more than the recommended daily intake for an adult.

You Can Order 24 Karat Gold Chicken Wings for $1,000 USD

Kim Kardashian confidant Jonathan Cheban has collaborated with US-based sports bar and lounge The Ainsworth on a new menu item of gold-covered chicken wings. The chicken wings are first soaked in coconut butter, chipotle and honey for 24 hours, then fried and dusted with 24 karat gold flakes.

The Foodgod 24 Karat Wings are available to order in three tiers: 10 wings for $30 USD, 20 wings for $60 USD or 50 wings and a bottle of Champagne Armand de Brignac for $1,000 USD. The Foodgod 24 Karat Wings will release as a permanent menu item at the Chelsea and East Village, Manhattan locations.

In the 22 years I have been working in the field of nutrition, it never surprises me when the new fad comes out,” says registered dietitian Deborah Orlick Levy, a health and nutrition consultant for New Jersey–based health-foods company Carrington Farms. “People get bored with the same old foods and look for something new and exciting. This recent gold-laced food fad is no different. It seems there’s something sexy about eating food covered in gold — not to mention pricy — so people are curious to find out more. Edible gold might be an expensive treat, but it is safe to consume. However, there are no nutritional or health benefits associated with indulging in this extravagant food. Of course, you do gain bragging rights for being able to say you could afford to eat a $100 gold doughnut. But let’s not forget that although the gold in the doughnut is not going to hurt you, the saturated fat, trans fats, and unhealthy nutritional profile of the doughnut itself certainly could.”

Gday. Some nice looking food there. I have tried a few dishes with gold. If gold is on top its usually a fine restaurant with good food also enjoyed a few white wines with gold flakes. Very nice. Give it a go.

If a stack of 1000 sheets of micron gold leaf, all stacked neatly together in one pile, is the same thickness as a typical piece of printing paper, it would cost around 10 to 15 cents a sheet, more than enough to cover that burger. This is where the the meaning "More money than sense" comes into to play, considering gold is both tasteless & non nutritional..
As usual where moneys no concern Nero, there's no limit to the stretch of ones imagination. If people have the money & want to pay for it, just so they could say I ate a $2000 dollar burger, by all means, may they enjoy their burger.
As for me, never tried it & even though it is within affordable reach for some, still not in my interest to, reason being, such thin light leaf gold. Mind you, I'd be more than happy to consume a $65 burger with a solid clean 23k 1 gram gold nugget placed on top of the burger, cause of the better resale value within the next 24hrs. Trying to pan off & recover 15+ cents worth of fine leaf micron gold the following day, is a lot of hard yakka. Shocked Q35
None the less Marco, both interesting write up, with top photography.  cheers

While its all very pretty and such, its just another case of the overindulgent rich snobs showing off by eating it and paying ridiculous prices for the experience, really its just a waste when millions around the world go hungry and we should remember also its not these rich snobby types of people who do the sweating and sometimes dying to get the gold in the first place, why would you want to eat gold anyway unless you are an Emu, we all know how smart they are No as they do that in the goldfields they eat rocks and sometimes even nuggets to help aid in digestion of their food, so if you find a sunbaker think first about this before you pop it in your gob to clean it, it could have dropped out of an Emu's bum. Suspect

It is not that a good shot of Hg to top it all off, won't solve the micron gold panning issue koeh, but more the fact of trying to communicate with the wife straight after, through undergoing peripheral vision impairment, difficulty with speech & hearing, all whilst constantly twitching at the same time, might be a problem .Q35
