five dishes I’d love to try... if I was a millionaire.

 


Have you ever dreamed of what you’d buy if you came into big money? Personally, my mind instantly goes to all the crazy expensive food I could try, along with the luxurious service that comes with it. Forget new car or moving house - think of all the incredible food you could afford and not even bother looking at the bill. From flourishes of gold leaf to rare caviar, here are a few of my millionaire must-eats. All I need to do now is buy a lottery ticket…


Gold leaf sushi, £1,440

According to Guinness World Records, Angelito Araneta Jr’s five-piece special nigiri roll is officially the most expensive sushi in the world. Forget toasted nori, his Norwegian pink salmon sushi is wrapped in gold leaf no less, before being crowned with African pearls. Costing around $1,978 for five slices - it comes in at nearly £1500 depending on if the exchange rate is on your side. Wouldn’t mind finding that on a sushi belt!



White truffle and gold pizza, £1,670

Break the budget with a 24 carat gold leaf and white truffle pizza at Margo’s. If you fancy this one, you’ll have to give them a week’s notice to make it. And that’s only if it’s truffle season. This white truffle and gold pizza (yes again with the edible gold leaf - we’re millionaires now) can be found in Malta’s capital, Valletta.


Wagyu beef, £150 a pound

Weighing in at around $200 or £150 a pound, wagyu beef is said to be amongst the best steak in the world. And people will pay the price for the luxury. The Japanese beef has to be reared a specific way to make the mark, with special feed to ensure the meat is marbled. It forms one of the ingredients in the famous $5000 (yes that is the right amount of zeros) Fleurburger from Las Vegas. Stacked up with lashings of foie gras, truffles, truffle sauce in a brioche bun, this £3445 feast is served up with a bottle of Chateau Petrus to wash it down.



Chocolate egg dessert, £24,115

House deposit or dessert? I know it’s hard to decide right. But we’re in the money now so let’s have both. Found in the Lake District, this Easter treat is the handiwork of Marc Guibert, head chef at Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel in Windermere, Cumbria. Unlike most chocolate eggs, it looks like it should be in the Faberge collection of a museum or gallery than on your dessert plate.

Afternoon tea, £550 per couple

Speaking of dessert, this expensive afternoon tea is a steal at £225 a head… Executive Head Chef Carlos Martinez of Cliveden House, in Berkshire, has designed a feast which features some of the most expensive produce in the world. The extravagant menu is so expensive because of the rare Da Hong Pao Tea, harvested from 1000-year-old plants and costing more than £2,000 per kilogram. To add to that, Beluga Caviar, at £4,000 per kilogram, adds to the luxurious spread.
