The World's Most Expensive Dessert
The golden plum souffle, a British creation, has made the Top Ten of the world's most expensive desserts (it came tenth); the list is compiled Forbes Traveler magazine.
The golden plum souffle costs £24, and is served at the Waterside Inn in Bray, Berkshire.
The dish is the creation of Michel Roux, and contains mirabelle plums, a delicacy from Alsace in France.
Top of the list was Fortress Aquamarine, costing £7,300, available in Galle, Sri Lanka. This contains an 80-carat aquamarine which is balanced on an upright sliver of chocolate shaped like the resort's logo. It comes with cassata served in a vase of sugar.
Oddly enough, no one has bought this absurdly priced dessert yet.
