Food for a fortune!
Fancy digging into a $12,000 (Rs 6.8 lakh) pizza from Italy or a $2,000 (Rs 1.2 lakh) slice of Wagyu beef pie from England? Social media food app dishpal has launched an infographic detailing most expensive foods in the world, among which are gold-lined, truffle-laced and wine soaked foods like a $16,000 (Rs 9 lakh) meat pie sold at the Fence Gate Inn in Lancashire, England.
Filled with 2.7 kg of Kobe beef, each slice costs $2,000. What does that princely sum buy you? A meat pie marinated in two bottles of 1982 Chateau Mouton Rothschild, filled with truffles and Matsutake mushrooms, and edible 23-carat gold for garnish. At New York’s Westin hotel at Times Square, chef Frank Tujague created a $1,000 (Rs 56,000) bagel stuffed with white truffle cream cheese and goji berry-infused Riesling jelly with gold leaves.
