Leap Day, on February 29, has been a day of traditions, folklore and superstitions ever since Leap Years were first introduced by Julius Caesar over 2000 years ago.
Women Propose to Their Men, according to an old Irish legend, or possibly history, St Brigid struck a deal with St Patrick to allow women to propose to men – and not just the other way around – every four years.
This is believed to have been introduced to balance the traditional roles of men and women in a similar way to how leap day balances the calendar.
So come on Girls pop the question to your loved one, otherwise you will have to wait another 4 years!!
The Golden Cristal Ube Donut was created by Björn DelaCruz, owner of the Manila Social Club, who came up with the idea as a limited-edition special. Björn’s lavish creation proved so popular however that he has now made it a permanent fixture on the Filipino restaurant’s menu. The donut is filled with an ube, or purple yam, mousse, flavored with Cristal Champagne to add ‘honey’ notes, and then covered in 24ct gold
Decadent dessert: Williamsburg-based chef Björn DelaCruz, co-owner of the Manila Social Club restaurant, has created a $100 gold leaf and champagne donut, christened the Golden Cristal Ube Donut
‘The reason that gold leaf and Cristal were added was because I love all different champagnes,’ Björn told First We Feast.
‘I wanted to add something [to the menu] for the new year to celebrate how long we have been going. I didn’t know people would go and order a dozen [of these] at a time! But then again, it is New York, and there are people willing to put down [over a] grand for a dozen donuts.’
And while the initial concept of the donut was thought-up as part of a one-time special, Björn insists that using the over-the-top ingredients was never intended as a gimmick, but rather as a means of ensuring the sweet treat contained only the finest – and most unique – flavours.
‘The reason I chose Cristal over another type of champagne is because Cristal has really great honey notes which goes great with ube,’ he added to First We Feast.
The extravagant ice cream is listed as the Guinness Book of World Records’ most expensive dessert, costs a staggering $1000 and is covered in 23-carat gold leaf.
