In New York, the restaurant Serendipity 3 has added French fries for $200 to the menu. This is reported by CNN.
The basis of the dish is Chiperbek potatoes. Potato slices are blanched in a mixture of vinegar and champagne and fried twice in pure goose fat. Double roasting is necessary so that the slices are crispy on the outside and airy on the inside.
Before serving, the French fries are sprinkled with edible gold, sprinkled with truffle oil, and sprinkled with truffle salt. Thinly sliced truffles and Mornay cheese sauce with the addition of a rare mushroom are also placed on the plate.
The compilers of the Guinness Book of Records drew attention to the unique dish. They declared French fries in Serendipity 3 the most expensive in the world.
Earlier in Japan, a bunch of grapes was sold for a record amount. Berries of the variety вЂњRuby RomanвЂќ, which are grown in Ishikawa Prefecture, went under the hammer for 1.4 million yen (about $13 thousand).
