Did you think that gold was reserved only for jewelry or investment? Not at all, it is possible to buy culinary gold for food!
Indeed, gold is an edible and non-allergenic metal, it’s used in savory, sweet dishes as well as in drinks, and we use it here at French Sweet (like to decorate the macarons, on the top of our Chocolate Fudge Cake ).
It doesn’t have any taste, it is used purely for aesthetic purposes, for the decoration of dishes or pastries.
Unlike jewelry, culinary gold must be consumed pure.
You can find it in the form of sheets, powder or glitter and can be used by professionals as well as individuals.
Since the leaf is a very fine and delicate material, the use of a brush or clamp is recommended to do not alter the material. The application processes differ according to the professionals.
