Rich, Sinful, Decadent - Strawberries Arnaud

At $1.4 million it's the world's most expensive dessert

Strawberries Arnaud at the 90-year old Arnaud’s restaurant in New Orleans French Quarter looks like a regular bowl of sliced fruit. Arnaud Casbarian has used such an extremely exquisite array of ingredients in this dish that it has become quite legendary. This amazing dessert features strawberries marinated in the finest port, served with fresh mint and cream. Except that this dessert is garnished with a one-of-a-kind 4.7-carat pink diamond ring, once belonging to the famous English financier Sir Ernest Cassel. It’s accompanied by white-gloved waiters pouring rare port from a $24,850 Charles X crystal cave liqueur set.
