The world’s most expensive dessert

The Fortress Stilt Fisherman IndulgenceEarlier this year, a dessert that is probably a little too rich for most, and where most are probably not rich enough for it, debuted at a resort in Sri Lanka.   The Fortress Stilt Fisherman Indulgence – as it has been not so succinctly named – is on the menu at Wine3 at The Fortress at a cost of $14,500. It consists of gold leaf Italian cassata flavoured with Irish cream, served with a mango and pomegranate compote and a Champagne sabayon enlighten. The dessert is decorated with a chocolate carving of a fisherman clinging to a stilt, an age-old local fishing practice, and an 80 carat aquamarine stone.   Interest in the dessert as come from as  far afield  as Japan, but apparently nobody has yet forked over the money to try it.  No surprise there, then.
