The world's most expensive ice cream has a new record, according to Guinness World Records (GWR), which was released on Friday. Cellato, a Japanese ice cream company, won the award. White Night is referred to as gelato on the website of the Japanese ice cream company Cellato, a nod to the product's Italian heritage. According to an article posted last week on the Guinness World Records website, this ingredient alone could bring in up to two million yen ($14,500) per kilogramme if it were solely sourced from Alba, which is known for producing some of the best white truffles in all of Italy. The ice cream is topped off by an edible gold leaf, two types of cheese and “Sakekasu,” a paste-like ingredient derived from the process of sake-making. “It took us over 1.5 years to develop, with a lot of trials and errors to get the taste right,” a representative from the company told Guinness World Records earlier. he company said its mission isn’t just about making mouthwateringly expensive desserts but to create a culinary adventure that merges European ingredients and traditional Japanese foods. For that, it brought in Tadayoshi Yamada, the head chef at RiVi, an Osaka-based restaurant known for its French-Japanese fusion cuisine, to steer the project, according to Guinness World Records. The desert is available for sale in Japan and is shipped directly to consumers, according to Cellato’s website.
