Culinary use of edible gold first originated in Kanazawa Japan, by artisans famous their samurai craftsmanship. Edible gold was originally used in traditional Japanese green tea before becoming widespread to desserts and liquor.  Original Artisan Gold continues this tradition today in Kanazawa Japan, crafting the world's most famous edible gold by two master artisans whose training took 10 years to develop in this rare skill. Original Artisan Gold's expertise and flexible manufacturing system includes the initial gold smelting, to creating the gold leaf, and then final product.
