    The Crème de la Crème Pomme Frites start out as Chipperbec potatoes. They are blanched - or scalded - in vinegar and champagne. Then they fry in pure goose fat, not oil, and not once but twice, so they are crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside.

    Sprinkled with edible gold and seasoned with truffle salt and truffle oil, they are served on a crystal plate with an orchid, thin-sliced truffles, and a Mornay cheese dip. The sauce, too, is infused with truffles, a rare seasonal mushroom.

    I’d pay the $200 for the right dish, but the description/ingredients did nothing for me.

    Eating flakes of real gold comes off as indulgent imo.

    I was up to willing to pay about $10 until I read truffle oil and truffle salt. Now I have ran the numbers again and if they are willing to pay me $200 I might give it a go. If drunk.

    Lol no.
    Could I instead donate $200 to some charity, and then get to beat the ass of someone who ordered the fries?

    If you want to shave an actual truffle on my food, I will let you. But truffle oil is the “Dorito flavoring” of the culinary world. Just stop. If I wanted to make my corn chips “taste like” nachos I will make some fucking nachos. Same with truffle oil.

    I mean it’s probably not worth $200 but usually these stupid expensive foods with gold foil on them cost more than that. So I vote yes. But it would be nice if I got more than 11 fries or however many are in that picture.

    Including real gold does nothing for taste and just drives up the price. You’ve been scammed

    The edible gold trend needs to stop. Nothing but instagram influencer vibes. I did gold wings once with some family because they were into it. Adds nothing. Gets everywhere.

    I like that they’re living in 1980s fantasy-land where truffles are a super rare delicacy. I’m pretty confident I could play pin the tail on the donkey of the nearest burger joints and come away with some decent truffle fries for around 10 dollars.
