Going Vegan? Use 24k Edible Gold and Organic Vanilla to Wow at Your Next Dinner Party

Slofoodgroup Team May 09, 2019

Eating healthy has become increasingly popular. More people are turning to veganism and other forms of healthier eating. Unfortunately, healthy is not always fun and it can make it difficult to host a dinner party with tasty and visually appetizing foods. Since June 2016, over 60% of Americans bought organic food in the past 30 days. In keeping with that effort, people are looking for new ways to flavor their food other than with meat flavors. Organic spices, such as vanilla, are becoming incredibly popular flavors to use to in foods from ice cream to stew.

Use the Unexpected: Organic Vanilla and 24k Gold Leaf

If you are looking for ways to spruce up your healthier recipes, vanilla is a great option. If you are looking to impress at a special dinner, try incorporating 24k gold leaf into your recipe. Vanilla can be used to enhance the flavors of a wide array of recipes and 24k gold leaf will add an unforgettable wow factor.

Make Your Own Vanilla

Making your own vanilla is one way to make sure you have the best top quality vanilla available for your recipes. First, you will need to assemble your materials. Consider taking a trip to your local farmer's market to buy vanilla beans, a glass bottle, and quality alcohol, vodka is preferable. You may also visit any of your high-end grocery stores if you are looking for gourmet vanilla beans, which will offer a more robust flavor, and you will be able to guarantee their quality.

Once you have your vanilla made, then you have to decide what to do with it. One option is to use it to flavor some of your favorite recipes, or try some new ones. If you are preparing for a dinner party, using 24k edible gold leaf is a very easy way to add a touch of luxury to your plate.

Add a Touch of Edible 24K Gold Leaf Luxury

Adding edible 24K Gold is a creative and unexpected way to impress your dinner guest. Gold is defined as a "biologically inert", which means it is not absorbed by human digestive tracts as it passes through. Best of all, edible gold leaf is also considered vegan and will not upset your diet-conscious dinner guests. Sheets or flakes are available online or at your local high-end market and can be applied to almost any food. While it will take some time and patience, it will be well worth the oohs and ahhs from your guests.
