They sell a special gold leaf for champagne-- see Amazon of all
They also sell gold leaf for chocolates etc.

I'll tell you where I have come across gold leaf and food is in the very 
ultra dessert books. Like A Modernist View of Plated Desserts, etc.
You might try the local library and see if they be gotten for you if 
they don't own them.
http://www.gildedplanet.com/ediblegoldleaf.asp has recipes and 
instructions also.

Lots of others can be found thru Google
