We’ve often heard that eating an apple a day will keep your primary care provider at bay. While that may not be the case with Jane Q’s outlandishly decadent Golden Apple, it’s still an experience you may not want to miss out on.
Jane Q, a cafe and coffee bar located inside Hollywood’s Kimpton Everly Hotel, is serving an apple one would find straight out of a fairy tale.
The $700 apple is cored and filled with a rich white chocolate ganache. Executive Chef Bryan Podgorski then coats the apple in a luscious salted caramel before carefully adding gold leaf by hand. The dessert is then served on a wooden base inside a glass cloche and paired with a 1.5-ounce pour of Louis XIII cognac.
While over-the-top, the item was designed for guests to treat themselves.
If you plan on snacking on Jane Q’s Golden Apple, make sure to give the cafe at least 48 hours notice. Each apple takes quite a while to craft.
