gold1Waitor, waitor, there’s gold leaf in my soup!  Yes sir, that’s absolutely right, sheets of 24-carat gold are working their way into soups, cocktails and lollipops galore - and it’s all 100% edible.

The latest luxury trend to rip through the culinary scene, edible gold leaf is the most extravagant and indulgent way to splash the cash. While the use of gold in cooking is an ancient tradition among eastern communities, for most people it’s a creative, exotic new experience - and one that’s sure to rack up the price of your average pizza. From gold shredded marmalade to shimmering schnitzels, here’s how the world’s gourmet gurus have been adding a bit of extra sparkle to their dishes...

The Golden Tequila Popsicle

Luxury Mexican holiday resort, Marquis los Cabos, are serving up 24-carat gold ice-lollies to quench their thirsty pool-side guests. These $1,000-a-pop popsicles are made from Clase Ultra Tequila (which sells for about $1500 a bottle) and are packed with 24-carat gold flakes. Possibly the most luxurious way to stay cool by the pool, these grown-up ice-lollies are the perfect indulgence on a glamorous getaway.

Papa’s Golden Pizza

Edinburgh pizzeria Papa’s was one of the first restaurants to use gold in their cuisine back in 2006. The Pizza Royal 007 was created to celebrate the premier of James Bond’s Casino Royale, and was topped with smoked salmon, venison medallions, cognac-marinated lobster and champagne-soaked caviar - as well as the 24-carat edible gold.

Chef Domenico Crolla auctioned off the pizza to raise money for the Fred Hollow’s Foundation, which helps to prevent blindness in developing countries. It was sold for £2150 on Ebay to lawyer Maurizio Morelli and his wife Sabrina. Chef Crolla flew to their home city of Rome to personally cook for the pizza for the couple as part of their ultra-pricey Valentine’s day celebrations.

Since the success of his golden pizza, Chef Crolla has also developed a champagne and gold leaf sauce, as well as a version of the sparkling wine cocktail, Bellini, which uses edible Platinum leaves.
