World’s most expensive Valentine’s Day dinner
The world’s most expensive Valentine’s Day menu was unveiled in the UK yesterday, with the extravagant dinner costing £61 000 ($100,000).
Have £61,000 kicking around and want to impress your Valentine this year? A luxury retail website has designed a Valentine’s Day dinner featuring some of the rarest ingredients on the planet and a Michelin-starred chef.
Created by the same folks who put together around-the-world trips to all 962 UNESCO World Heritage Sites and a culinary odyssey to Michelin-starred restaurants in the world, the latest outrageously extravagant package from VeryFirstTo is an eight-course meal that would be prepared in the home by Michelin-starred British chef Adam Simmonds.
Predictably, the menu is designed as an aphrodisiacal experience that starts with oysters and Almus white caviar — a symbol of fertility — along with Pacific Bluefin tuna, foie gras, truffle salad and Wagyu beef.
Dishes are also paired with some of the finest wines in the world. Saffron risotto, for instance, is accompanied by a 1990 La Romanee-Conti, Domaine de la Romanee-Conti, valued at £17,000 ($27,680).
To wash down the oysters, guests will sip on a £3,600 ($5,860) bottle of 1959 Salon Blanc de Blancs, that also comes with South Sea pearls.
To cap off the meal, guests will tuck into bowls of vanilla and smoke chocolate Kopi Luwak ice cream.
