H
ouston's H Bar grabbed headlines in 2019 by offering a $1,600
burger gilded with edible gold leaf, but the concept was nothing
new. The ancient Egyptians believed that consuming gold would help
them win favor with the gods and provide medicinal benefits. During
the Middle Ages, Europeans decorated foods with gold to convey
wealth at elaborate banquets. Today, chefs use gold leaf to add
a touch of glamour to all kinds of dishes.
Made from thinly pounded sheets of pure gold, edible gold leaf
is flavorless and passes through the digestive tract without being
absorbed. What it does bring to the table is glimmer and shine.
While gold leaf is typically used to adorn candies and desserts,
many bartenders stir gold flakes into cocktails for a shimmery effect.
It can also be used to accent savory dishes.
Jordan's executive chef likes to use pieces of gold leaf like little
handkerchiefs, draping them onto food as a beautiful garnish.
Recently, for Jordan Winery guests, chef poached baby pears
in fermented honey and covered half of each pear with gold leaf
to create a textured luster. Because the gold sheets are so thin-they
pick up the details of different foods-Jordan's culinary team will
sometimes layer a small piece over caviar.
When buying edible gold leaf-it's easy to find through online
specialty stores and cake-decorating shops-be sure that it is made
from at least 22 carat gold, because lesser-quality leaf may contain
impurities. Sheets come in booklets and cost around $3 per 3-inch
square. The squares are extremely delicate and require careful
handling. Even breathing on gold leaf can send it flying across the
kitchen. To avoid having the gold stick to your skin, use a razor for
cutting and tweezers for transferring. For larger pieces, try flipping
the gold directly onto the food, so you won't have to pick it up off
the paper.
Jordan's best advice for working with gold leaf is to save it for truly
special dishes-like a 50th
anniversary celebration. From decadent
desserts to luxurious appetizers, the edible gold leaf can be added
to many recipes and is sure to impress any party guest. P
