On July 13, Serendipity3, a restaurant in Manhattan, earned the title for the world’s most expensive French fries by the Guinness World Records, reports News 18.
Creative Chef, Joe Calderone, and Corporate Executive Chef, Fredrick Schoen-Kiewert of the restaurant teamed up to elevate the classic American food item to present its guests with a unique and delicious culinary experience.
The dish is priced at $200 and includes ingredients like Dom Perignon Champagne, pure cage-free goose fat from France, and J. LeBlanc French Champagne Ardenne Vinegar.
The dish is prepared by blanching the potatoes in Dom Perignon Champagne and J. LeBlanc French Champagne Ardenne Vinegar, which adds a touch of sweetness and acidity to the initial taste. The fries are then cooked in pure goose fat thriceto give the outer layer a crisp and crunchy texture.
The smooth Mornay sauce, which comes with the French fries, is made by melting a large amount of truffle butter in a pan. A pinch of flour is added to make a roux, which is then slowly whisked in the organic A2 100 per cent grass-fed cream from Jersey Cows to thicken the consistency of the sauce.
Apart from the fancy ingredients, the presentation is also kept very aesthetically pleasing. The dish is served up on a Baccarat crystal Arabesque Plate, with a matching bowl to serve the dipping sauce which is made with copious amounts of truffle butter and premium Gruyere cheese.
The fries are served on a crystal plate and the team of chefs garnish the fries with 23-karat edible gold dust.
