Wednesday, July 13, is International French Fries Day, and a New York eatery is re-releasing the world’s most expensive french fries to celebrate.
Serendipity 3 NYC in Manhattan, New York, had their mouth-watering fries with an eye-watering price tag certified as the world’s most expensive last year by Guinness World Records.
“Crème de la Crème Pomme Frites,” as they are known, are on the Serendipity 3 NYC menu and sell for a whopping $200 USD (just under $300 Aussie dollars).
What are some of the ingredients you’d use to make the world’s most expensive french fries? Guinness World Records went into the kitchen with Creative Chef, Joe Calderone, and Corporate Executive Chef, Fredrick Schoen-Kiewert to find out and discovered that some of the key ingredients are:
- Chipperbeck potatoes
- Vintage Dom Perignon Champagne
- Pure cage-free goose fat from France
- Guerande Truffle Salt
- Crete Senesi Pecorino Tartufello cheese
- Shaved black summer truffles from Italy
- Organic A2 100% grass fed cream from Jersey cows
- Aged Gruyere Truffled Swiss
- A 23k edible gold dust topping
But what do they taste like? Record-breaking competitive eater Kevin Thomas Strahle (known as L.A. Beast) tried out the fries and discovered the chef’s secrets in the video below:
