Fun on Friday: Make Your Guests Poop Gold

  by    0   0

People eat gold.

Yes. I know I’ve touched on this before. But I still don’t get it.

I came across a story this week about a caterer in India who was asked to come up with something that would stun guests at a wedding. So, V Sai Radha Krishna decided he would serve rice covered in 24-karat gold leaf.

Yup. Sai decided to take the most bland food in the world and spruce it up with a tasteless topping of gold.

It is not new to have gold. People have been eating sweets wrapped in gold leaf and silver leaf. I tried the same with rice. I knew that gold leaf will melt on hot steamed rice. I just tried it, and it worked well.”

It’s important to emphasize here that gold doesn’t have any flavor. It’s all for show. If you eat chocolate wrapped in gold, you at least get the joy of eating chocolate. Or if you put gold on a steak like they do at Hiroshi, a upscale restaurant in Silicon Valley, you get to eat a mouth-watering steak. But this is just plain old, sticky white rice. You can melt all the gold leaf on it you want. You’re still eating plain old, sticky white rice. I’m not really impressed.

Here’s something else I thought was kind of funny. If you watch the video, you’ll notice the place settings at this fancy wedding include bottled water. You want to really impress me at your upscale wedding? How about putting my water in a glass? That would be pretty bougie.

Anyway, I’m still trying to wrap my head around this. Why would you would want to eat gold? I guess at some level, it proves you have money. It creates an aura. “Wow! This dude is so rich he can just serve up gold for dinner.” Executive chef at Toronto restaurant Aria, Eron Novalski, has a simple explanation as to why restaurants use gold leaf in their food.

It’s gold. It kind of speaks for itself.”

I can see that. It ties in with the intrinsic value of gold. I mean, let’s face it; you wouldn’t get the same effect if you served your guests rice garnished with iron shavings.

But as I got to the end of the article, I realized I was thinking about the whole thing from the, ummm, wrong end. You see, the big appeal is that you can “make your guests poop out gold.”

If you’re planning an event and want to give your guests this gift, you can buy the gold leaf from Amazon. It will only set you back about $26.

But I think I’m going to pass. I’m not really into flushing money down the toilet. I’m going to stick with investing in gold.  I’ll keep it and enjoy the wealth it affords.
