7 Most Expensive Meals Ever Made
Food can be extraordinarily delicious or it can taste like crap. It can also be bought economically, or you can choose to spend a ridiculous amount of money on it for absolutely no reason at all, other than you can afford to. Here are seven of the most money-burning meals to ever see a stovetop. Read on and consider whether you think them worth the sticker-shock you will suffer when you get your bill…
1. Strawberries Arnaud…$3.95 Million
This is the chart-topper for our list today, consisting of beautiful strawberries marinated in port, red wine, citrus, and other spices and served with vanilla ice cream. The dessert is topped off with a seven-plus karat pink diamond as incentive.
Really? Yep, this pudding will cost you big, but it resembles a Faberge egg and includes a 2 karat diamond, gold leave, caviar, and champagne. I’m sorry, but I have to say, while it is cool to look at I have a hard time believing any 2 karat diamond would make it worth shelling out a year’s income for, do you?
3. The Frrrozen Haute Chocolate Ice Cream…$34,500
This baby was once the Guinness record holder for being the most expensive dessert, but now lags in the back price-wise. It consists of 28 different cocoas, gold-infused ice cream, and is dished into a ‘goblet’ which has been strategically lined with edible gold as well. Top that with an 18-carat gold and diamond bracelet and some gold sprinkles on your whipped cream and you have highway robbery at its classiest.
4. Fortress Stilt Fisherman Indulgence…$14,500
Sri Lanka’s Fortress Resort and Spa serves up this dessert masterpiece, complete with an 80-karat Aquamarine stone. It is an Italian Cassata made of gold leaf, fruit infused with Irish Cream, pomegranate compote, and mango, and is covered in a champagne sabayon created with Dom Perignon. Waste, waste, waste!
5. The ‘Pink Bike’ Burger…$7000
This creation by Pink Caravan at Dubai Mall was put together in recognition of breast cancer awareness. It is not filled with crazy ingredients, and isn’t even pretty to look at. The burgers are auctioned off, with proceeds going towards work on breast cancer treatment and education. So far this is the only item on our list that is worth it in my eyes.
6. AnQi Pho Soup…$5000
Campbell’s has nothing on these guys, but I bet those familiar canned soups taste a hell of a lot better. With foie gras broth, lobster, Alba truffles, and a 7-day advance notice to get the soup together, this one doesn’t even adorn you with jewels; it’s just an insane extravagance that cannot be justified.
7. Pizza Royale 007…$4,200
This pizza measures twelve inches and is topped with Scottish smoked salmon, lobster that has been marinated in cognac, champagne-soaked caviar, venison rounds, sun-ripened tomato sauce, prosciutto, and aged balsamic vinegar. It is then topped with edible gold sprinkles. The situation rectifies itself only in the fact that proceeds are given to The Fred Hollows Foundation after being auctioned on eBay.
