SERENDIPITY SELLS THE WORLDS MOST EXPENSIVE DESSERTS




SUMPTUOUS LUXURY DESSERTS ARE NOT JUST DESSERTS ANYMORE THEY ARE WORLD RECORD-BREAKING DESSERTS. A STUNNING £630 GRAND OPULENCE SUNDAE AND A MIND-BOGGLING £15,730 'FRRROZEN HAUTE CHOCOLATE' ARE ON OFFER AT NEW YORK'S FAMOUS SERENDIPITY 3 RESTAURANT AND ACCORDING TO GUINNESS ARE THE MOST EXPENSIVE DESSERTS IN THE WORLD. CREATED BY ONE OF SERENDIPITY'S SPECIALIST CHEFS TO ORDER AT YOUR TABLE, THE GRAND OPULENCE SUNDAE IS AVAILABLE AT 48 HOURS NOTICE AND THE FRRROZEN HAUTE CHOCOLATE AT A STAGGERING TWO WEEKS. EACH CONTAINS 24 CARAT EDIBLE SWISS GOLD AND IS LINED WITH 23 CARAT EDIBLE GOLD LEAF AND MAINTAINS THE RESTAURANTS FAME FOR PRODUCING WORLD RENOWNED AND EXPENSIVE DESSERTS. 'WE PRODUCED THE GRAND OPULENCE TO CELEBRATE OUR 50th ANNIVERSARY IN 2005', SAID JOE CALDERONE, A SPOKESMAN FOR SERENDIPITY. 'WE WANTED SOMETHING TO MATCH OUT GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY, SO BASED OUR SUNDAE AROUND THAT PRECIOUS METAL. EACH ONE IS MADE WITH THREE SCOOPS OF THE RICHEST TAHITIAN VANILLA ICE CREAM, WHICH WE INFUSE WITH MADAGASCAR VANILLA PODS. THE SUNDAE IS HELD WITHIN A BACCARAT HARCOURT CRYSTAL GOBLET AND LINED WITH 23 CARAT EDIBLE GOLD LEAF. WE DRIZZLE IN THE WORLD'S RAREST AND EXPENSIVE CHOCOLATE AMEDEI PORCELEANA, WHICH IS HARVESTED FROM VENEZUELA AND COVERED IN CHUNKS OF CHUAO CHOCOLATE. WE ADD CANDIED FRUITS FROM PARIS AND THE SUNDAE IS TOPPED WITH GRAND PASSION CAVIAR, WHICH IS SALT FREE AMERICAN CAVIAR INFUSED WITH PASSION FRUIT, ORANGE AND ARMAGNAC. THE DESSERT IS EATEN WITH AN 18 CARAT GOLDEN SPOON AND TOPPED WITH A SPECIALLY DESIGNED SUGAR FLOWER.' NEEDING TWO DAYS NOTICE TO ORDER SOME OF THE INGREDIENTS AS THE CANDIED FRUIT FROM FRANCE, SERENDIPITY SAYS THAT SINCE ITS UNVEILING IN 2005 THEY HAVE SOLD 200 GRAND OPULENCE SUNDAES. HOWEVER, SERENDIPITY HAS ANOTHER STRATOSPHERIC DESSERT ON OFFER, THE FRRROZEN HAUTE CHOCOLATE AND IS OFFICIALLY RECOGNIZED BY GUINNESS AS THE WORLD'S MOST EXPENSIVE DESSERT. 'WE TAKE A BACCARAT HARCOURT GOBLET FOR THE HAUTE CHOCOLATE, BUT IN THIS CASE THERE IS A 18 CARAT GOLD AND WHITE DIAMOND BRACELET ATTACHED TO THE NECK.
