Edible gold leaf has been used for centuries by the rich and wealthy. Italian nobility dined on risotto with edible gold leaf during the sixteenth century. The Elizabethans eat sweets and fruits covered in edible gold leaf, while Japanese had it sprinkled into Sake.
Today it has become more affordable and can be used from that first welcome cocktail drink to the final cheese board. So why not dazzle your friends at your next dinner party, or even your partner with a romantic meal for 2.
Why not give it as a dinner party present in place of flowers or candles. What could be nicer then to give our gift wrapped shaker gold dust, so your host can sprinkle it directly onto the 1st course to add that WOW factor. Edible Gold & Silver Leaf is tasteless and odourless so it won’t affect the most delicate dish. It has been deemed safe by the European Trade (EU) for human consumption. It is suitable for all religious groups, vegetarians and vegans.
