The glittering trend started in Silicon Valley restaurants and has crossed the Atlantic to Sainsbury’s stores, ready for our plates.
The new cuts of meat in the range are:
- Taste the Difference British Bone in Ribeye Steak – serves two, matured for 30 days and best cooked medium
- Taste the Difference British Bone in Sirloin Steak – serves two, matured for 30 days and best cooked medium rare

- By Sainsbury’s Flat Iron Steak – serves one, matured for 21 days and best cooked medium rare
Rebecca Deeley at Sainsbury’s comments: “We know that a steak dinner is now much more of an occasion, and many of our customers are seeking inspiration from restaurants for on-trend cuts and accompaniments to try something new. Applying our edible gold leaf over a perfectly seared and succulent steak can quickly transform a classic evening meal into something truly sensational!”
Sparkly food is definitely on the menu this autumn with Tesco launching its rare gold-flecked gourmet avocado this week.
