Scottish chef creates world's most expensive toffee apple

As part of this week's EuroMillions Mega Friday draw, Scottish chef Mark Greenaway created the extravagant 24 carat gold leaf covered apple after he was asked to come up with a Christmas pudding fit for a millionaire.The extravagant dessert also features gold flakes and powder through its caramel coating, forming part of a £2000 serving.

Mark told the Dairy Record: "I'm really honoured that they asked me to do it out of all the chefs in the UK. I had to come up with a recipe that was Scottish so I managed to find an old recipe belonging to my fiancee's great great grandmother for the basis of the idea."

He added: "I wanted to create a dish that embraced tradition but with some really special millionaire twists."

The 24 carat gold leaf covers the apple within the Christmas pudding, replacing the lucky six pence, and is edible and the dessert also features whisky from a £27000 bottle of 50 year old single malt, with the 50ml used equating to around £1800.
