Luxurious Garnish: Edible Gold

There is something so decadent about a dessert covered in gold! Typically used to adorn a chef’s expensive luxurious and expensive dishes and desserts like chocolate cakes, the tradition of adding edible gold to food has been around for a long time.

Edible Gold Throughout the Ages

The Europeans have traditionally used Edible Gold in food, favored by Earls and Dukes. In the 15th century, it was used medicinally. In Elizabethan times, banquets were adorned with Edible Gold Dust sprinkled on their fruits like oranges, figs, dates, and pomegranates. In Japan, it has been added not only to food, but for centuries, it has been added to their sake. Edible gold is pure gold and is safe to eat.

Edible Gold Dust

While using the gold leaf sheets is both expensive and tricky, an inexpensive option is using edible gold dust (available at gourmet shops) on your special desserts! It comes in shaker jars, read to use and easy to apply, and makes your precious bites golden!
