CHICAGO (CBS) — If you thought Chicago had the richest tasting pizza, you might want to think again. Industry Kitchen, a New York American cuisine that typically focuses on favorites like salads, meats and pizzas, created a $2,000 pizza for those with expensive taste or those who want to splurge a bit. “It is the epitome of decadence,” Industry Kitchen executive chef Braulio Bunay told Town and Country, explaining he was inspired by the nearby Financial District. “The pizza is extremely rich—if you’re in the mood for a lavish meal, this is the pizza for you.” Chef Bunay continued saying by preparing such an expensive dish in “the form of pizza, makes it more approachable.” (Umm sure let me just spend a couple grand on a pizza, no big deal). Instagram Photo The pizza includes Stilton cheese, foie gras (liver of a fattened duck), French truffles, platinum Ossetra caviar, and sheets of 24k gold leaves and flakes. In addition to all of that, the crust of the pizza is infused with black squid ink, plus edible flowers garnished on top. “The people get in shock because they never see in one dish all these special ingredients,” Bunay told Insider. “It’s very expensive and it’s delicious.” Instagram Photo Again, the pizza rings in at $2,000. Therefore, if you do the math and the pizza is cut this into eight pieces, that would make each slice cost $250 and each bite cost about $50, depending on the amount of bites you take. And if you are considering purchasing the decadent pizza, Industry Kitchen asks patrons to give them a two-day notice. Instagram Photo And the name of this expensive pizza? Well we’ve heard a song about 24K Magic, so fittingly the wood-fired, thin-crust pizza topped with gold claims the title, 24K Pizza. But before the Bruno Mars album was released and the 24K Pizza was served, other chefs started using gold as a way to raise the bar of everyday foods, such as ice cream sundaes, donuts, bagels and more.

Damaged Oroville Dam Spillway Triggering Gold Rush Dreams

YUBA CITY (CBS SF) — There is a golden lining to the fears triggered by the damaged spillway at the Oroville Dam. While the threat of collapse of the massive dam on the Feather River drove people from their homes last winter, the surge of water through the dam and down the damaged spillway has triggered gold fever in many local residents and dam construction workers. Angela Dimmick is co-owner of Yuba City Coin and Bullion. She says gold collected by amateur prospectors is streaming through her doors. “They are finding gold in the Feather River, the Yuba River, all the feeders that feed into the river,” she said. “It’s exciting.” Even for the workers who are repairing the damaged spillway. “What we hear is from the Oroville Sam is that there are even the workers up there … seeing the nuggets too,” Dimmick said. Her shop nestled into what was once the heart of the 1849 Gold Rush has been busy buying up gold found in the local rivers. “There are so many people going in gold panning and bringing us gold,” Dimmick said. “They just want to quit their jobs and … put on their boots and go down to the river. That’s really the truth.” But, Dimmick said, the reality is that most strikes range from $40 to $300.

Finding the Gold!


As I was praying with a friend yesterday, God showed me a picture of an old fashioned gold mine with men digging away at the rock face with pick axes. Behind them there was a rusty old rail track with wagons on it that they were throwing their ‘treasures’ into as they uncovered them and then worked them out of the rock face where they were held tightly. It was a slow, laborious process and the…

The Midas Touch: Alchemy in the Medieval and Early Modern Eras

The Midas Touch: Alchemy in the Medieval and Early Modern Eras

It has been a splendid week doing talks and research in southern California (you can see all my slides for the talks here). One of the highlights of this trip was a special visit to the Getty in L.A. to see two adjacent exhibits (one at the Getty Museum and the other at the Getty Research Institute) on the manuscripts, handbooks, recipes, dyes, and material culture connected to alchemy. I have…
