Chef Marc Guibert at Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel in Windermere, Cumbria has created the world’s most expensive dessert– a pudding worth an astonishing $34,000.
I have a sweet tooth and I rarely find the power to resist a good dessert, but I’m really not the kind of guy who splurges thousands of dollars on a few bites. But as history has taught us, there are people out there willing to do just that, and chef Marc Guibert is catering to their needs with his extravagant chocolate pudding decorated with gold leaf and diamonds, worth over $34,000. Layered with champagne jelly and biscuit joconde, the expensive pudding is covered with dark chocolate, glazed with edible gold leaf and topped with a 2-carat diamond.
Although it looks like a big gold Faberge Egg when served, the world’s most expensive dessert is just a piece of chocolate pudding, inside the fancy-looking container. It’s made with four types of the finest Belgian chocolate and has to be ordered three weeks in advance. “Marc has used all of his culinary talents to whip up a truly incredible concoction of chocolate, champagne and gold leaf, all topped off with a diamond. It looks spectacular, tastes incredible and has a price tag to match!” the manager of the Lindeth Howe Hotel said about Guibert’s achievement.
I’m thinking this would go really well with that gold-covered schnitzel I wrote about a while ago.
