Talking about over-the-top food creations, this Quintessential Grilled Cheese Sandwich is one of them. To celebrate their 60th years in business, a restaurant in New York City, Serendipity 3, puts a luxurious twist to the everyday comfort food, a grilled cheese sandwich now coated with a layer of 24 karat edible gold flakes. The two thick slices of bread made with Dom Perignon champagne, were coated with thick layers of grass-fed white truffle butter and 24 karat edible gold flakes. The cheese slices were also the rarest and finest Cacio cavallo Podolico cheese. The edges of the cut sandwich are coated with a thick layer of 24 karat edible gold. The entire creation received a Guinness World Record for the most expensive sandwich in the world with a price tag of $214.
