Now that's baroque!


Check out the Golden Opulence Sundae, which you can order for $1,000 at New York's Serendipity restaurant, in celebration of their 50th anniversary. I learned of this from boingboing.net and dailyolive.com, and could not resist posting it here. The description:

5 scoops of the richest Tahitian vanilla bean ice cream infused with Madagascar vanilla and 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, which is from cocoa beans harvested by the Caribbean Sea on Venezuela's coast. The masterpiece is suffused with exotic candied fruits from Paris, gold dragets, truffles and Marzipan Cherries. It is topped with a tiny glass bowl of Grand Passion Caviar, an exclusive dessert caviar, made of salt-free American Golden caviar, known for its sparkling golden color. It's sweetened and infused with fresh passion fruit, orange and Armagnac. The sundae is served in a baccarat Harcourt crystal goblet with an 18K gold spoon to partake in the indulgenceserved with a petite mother of pearl spoon and topped with a gilded sugar flower by Ron Ben-Israel.


I hope it tastes amazing!

Holy crap on a cross! I'm slack-jawed and google-eyed. Truly.

I'd say this qualifies for OOC.

It's ok flooz, it scares me, too. I feel like I need a visit to Chikalicious to set me back on the path of dessert sanity.
