Dutch pranksters fool foodies into thinking McDonald's is gourmet food

Think it's easy to tell the difference between Michelin star grub from Mickey-D’s, right? Not so fast.

A pair of Dutch pranksters have tricked foodies into thinking McDonald’s burgers are gourmet, organic cuisine in a hilarious video that shows it's really all how the food is presented.

In a video posted to YouTube, two guys identified as Sacha and Cedrique with  Lifehunters video, are seen slicing up burgers, muffins and nuggets to make them look high-end, then offered them to unsuspecting experts at a food expo in Houten, the Netherlands.

They tell guests they were there to promote “top of the notch recipes” from their “high-end restaurant” that serves “organic alternatives to fastfood.”

Not only were the foodies impressed, they artfully describe the texture and taste of the food.  

One “expert” remarked: "Rolls around the tongue nicely.  If it were wine, I would say, it’s fine."

Another expert has this to say about a McMuffin: “The structure is good. Yes. Not too sticky.”

"I like it, it’s pure. It’s just pure organic product that makes it very tasty," says another man.
