World’s Most Expensive Desserts

Thursday, July 16th, 2009

expensive-desserts-01-dI thought this may be something kinda fun to know.  What is the worlds most expensive desserts?  Topping the list is “Strawberries Arnaud”.  Created by the 90 year old Arnaud’s Restaurant in the New Orleans French Quarter.  This simple bowl of fruit is garnished by a one-of-a-kind, 4.7 carat, natural PINK diamond ring.  This ring has a wonderful history and once belonged to Sir Ernest Cassel of England, look it up.  This encore is presented by a white-gloved waiter and served with a rare port that is from a $24,850.00, Charles X, crystal cave liqueur set.  The total for this tasty treat, a mere 1.4 million, that’s dollars not pesos.

Number two on the list is simply known as the “Fortress Stilt Fisherman Indulgence”, served at the Fortress in Galle, Sri Lanka resort.  The dish was designed to resemble a fisherman and showcases an 80 ct., native aquamarine. This dessert is a little mort affordable than the “Strawberries Arnaud” and has a price tag of only $14,500.  Come on, you probably have that in change under your couch cushions.
