not sure why but i dread opening e-mails.
However those news stories are great... especially when they're about grilled cheese.
So there is a restaurant in NYC called Serendipity 3 and they serve a 214.00$ grilled cheese. I repeat a 214.00$ GRILLED CHEESE.
The Quintessential Grilled Cheese features layers of the extremely rare Caciocavallo Podolico cheese which is aged in special caves.
The bread itself is baked using Dom Perignon Champagne and brushed with truffle oil that contains flecks of edible gold. White truffle butter is also smothered on the slices before its stuck on the grill.
The extravagant snack must be ordered at least 48 hours in advance to give chefs at the exclusive Serendipity 3, based in New York, plenty of time to prepare the masterpiece.
Its edges are then covered in 24-carat gold leaf and the sandwich is served with a tomato and lobster bisque which is presented in a baccarat crystal glass.
How insane is this.
I so desperately want to try this sandwich ... especially since I'm currently starving. Ha!
Featured below are some of the photos of this glorious masterpiece.
