London: A restaurant in UK has launched what is thought to be the world’s most expensive pudding for 22,000 pounds.
Styled like a Faberge Easter egg, the chocolate concoction is believed to have battered all previous records with its lavish list of ingredients, which include gold, champagne caviar and a two-carat diamond.
The pudding is made with four different types of the finest Belgian chocolate flavoured with a combination of peach, orange and whiskey.
It is layered with champagne jelly and a light biscuit joconde and glazed with edible gold leaf.
Marc Guibert, head chef at Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel in Windermere, Cumbria, created the record pudding, which is being launched for National Chocolate Week.
“Marc has used all of his culinary talents to whip up a truly incredible concoction of chocolate, champagne and gold leaf, all topped off with a diamond,” the Daily Mail quoted Stephen Broughton, managing director of Lindeth Howe, as saying.
“It looks spectacular, tastes incredible and has a price tag to match!” he stated.
At 22,000 pounds, the dessert easily breaks the world record currently held by New York’s Serendipity 3 Restaurant, which was selling its Frrrozen Haute Chocolate last year for a cool 15,730 pounds.
