The first evidence of gold being used at the dining table dates back to ancient Egypt. Believed to be one of the best ways to ingratiate themselves to their gods, gold was served in a votive manner. During the Renaissance period in Europe, gold took on less of a ritualistic nature and was instead enjoyed for its sumptuous decorative qualities and to show off the wealth of the host. Sprinkled over fruits and fish to catch the light, even kneaded into bread, there was no end of decorative uses for gold. And the same is true to this day. You’ll see gold incorporated into vodka, sake, and other liqueurs, a small leaf of gold decorates all manner of dishes from the savory to the sweet. Especially popular on cakes, gold leaf covers whole tiers of wedding and celebration cakes, lending them a shiny opulence everyone still loves to this day.
