Everything’s already been invented in this world, so these highly important fashion designers, top chefs and some other celebrities must be suffering when their public expects them to bring something new, original and wonderful to their lives. It’s the case of the chefs, after so many stressing nights without sleeping a wink cause their last fascinating idea is already demodé, they’ve had  a mad idea (mad in the bad way!): to add gold as the ingredient star of any delicatessen

Immediately I made my research about this, wishing the human race wasn’t even more stupid than I thought. What I found left me speechless: not only I found websites promoting this new golden ingredient: they say (with no scientific base, by the way) gold’s good for the rheumatism, is good for the heart, it slows down the aging… (like all of us should have gold muffins for breakfast!) but also other sites that were selling it And pretty expensive! Despite this hilarious defense of this metal, his last fashion in cooking is obscene, since some can eat expensive dishes and drink no less expensive champagnes with gold and silver and others suffer from hunger in their lives, a tragedy that will remain unsolved if we still destine all our resources in how to make the food of the rich ones even more awesome.

If we eat meat, organs or even insects we find denial from vegetarians and vegans… but who’s against eating minerals or elements from the periodic table? The only critics we could find would be about the idiocy of the commensals, willing to spend amounts over the three or four digits to pay their gold menu. Hopefully, at this point you must be wondering why. Maybe to retrieve it after visiting the toilet, hoping it doesn’t remain in their organs? I have no answer cause, well, all along the centuries every ingredient’s been valued for their taste, their healthy properties, etc… but that’s the point: gold has no taste at all. You can lick your wedding ring (if there is), or any medal or even a watch to check it, that gold is cold, tasteless… and toxic if you abuse of it -although I’d lie if I said it worries me the health of those who eat dishes made with gold.
