Guiness World Record For Most Expensive Fries Set at $200

There’s a new record holder for the world’s most expensive french fries! Called Creme de la Creme Pommes Frites, these fries cost $200 a plate. They feature Dom Perignon Champagne, shaved Crete senesi pecorino tartufello with black truffles from Italy, Guerande truffle salt from France, and are sprinkled with 23K edible gold dust. New York City restaurant Serendipity3 created the fries in order to celebrate National French Fry Day, which is July 13th.

Serendipity3, the iconic NYC landmark and flagship restaurant, is known for their eclectic American food and desserts set the new record. These french fries were crafted by Chef Joe Calderone, Creative Director, and Chef Frederick Schoen-Kiewert, Corporate Executive Chef.

“The record-breaking fries are thrice cooked in pure goose fat from Southwest France, made with the highest quality Chipperbeck potatoes. The potatoes are blanched in Dom Perignon Champagne and J. LeBlanc French Champagne Ardenne Vinegar. The fries are topped with shaved Crete Senesi Pecorino Tartufello and Black Summer Truffles from Italy and are seasoned with Guerande Truffle Salt. In addition, they are served with Mornay sauce made with Udder Cream, Black Truffle Butter, Gruyere Truffled Swiss Raclete, sprinkled with 23K edible gold dust and served on a Baccarat crystal Arabesque Plate.”

If you’ve ever wanted to try anything gold plated this is one way to go. I’ve only ever drank Goldschläger to feel fancy. I know these would take the cake and are exactly what I love to eat. Fries! You can try these exclusively at Serendipity3 in New York City. Of course now that I know today is National French Fry day I’ll be ordering a side of fries from wherever I go to eat today.
