If you have money – lots and lots of it – you’re going to find ways to spend it. And as long as you’re keen on it, others are going to find a way to relieve you of it. In return, they ensure that you have a grand experience and some very expensive memories.
Here’s our pick of some premium foods that the rich and famous make a beeline for. The time you tried them out too?
The Grand Opulence Sundae
You don’t ordinarily see adults going ga-ga over sundaes, but this one merits your attention, for a variety of reasons. To begin with, it’s priced at a $1000 for which you get Tahitian vanilla bean ice-cream, sprinklings of Amedei Porcelana – the most expensive chocolate in the world, Grand Passion caviar, truffles, gold covered almonds, marzipan cherries, gilded sugar flower, and dessert caviar. Covered with a 23-carat edible gold leaf, the sundae is served in a Baccarat crystal goblet and can be enjoyed with not just any spoon, but an 18-carat gold spoon! Wow, just wow!
The Zillion Dollar Lobster Frittata
The humble omelet has been given a luxurious facelift by New York’s Le Parker Meridien Hotel. It is made by adding 10 Sevruga caviar and lobster claws to 6 eggs, all of which comes to you for $1000. If you want a smaller version of this omelet, you can order that for $100. That’s a lot easier on your pocket.
The Westin Hotel Bagel
If an omelet can be served up in such an opulent manner, why should the bagel be left behind? No, sir, not at all! Frank Tujague, the Executive Chef of New York’s Westin Hotel, took it upon himself to make the bagel elite. This bagel has white truffle cream cheese, Riesling jelly infused with Goji berry and it’s garnished with golden leaves. All this for $1000! Not bad, right?
