Even a thought of saving money on the occasion of Christmas is not less than a sin. And worse is when you can afford to celebrate it in a lavish manner. It’s a moment to eat, drink and be merry. And here we have identified the venue offering the world’s most expensive Christmas dinner. Its biting cost justifies the theme of season of benevolence that believes in ‘excess’. And the generous acme is the Bacchanalian feast, centered on turkey, sprouts and trimmings. David Lidgate, owner of Holland park believes in paying tribute to the occasion by offering pricey Christmas turkey dinner his uber-rich and demanding customers. The ambience for an elite dinner seems to be bathed in fine prerequisites ranging from tablecloth, napkins, cutlery, plates, serving dishes, glasses, candlesticks and others. On the very arrival of guests, they are offered with a flute of 1995 Krug Clos du Mesnil served complementary with Iranian beluga caviar, smoked salmon, sour cream and Russian blini pancakes.
And this setting calls for an exclusive dinner where the main course is turkey and not gobbler. Turkey seems more mouth-watering with the sliding slices of white truffle under its skin. And like icing on a cake, the course offers you a leg of the finest Iberico ham. And not to forget sprouts. Bedfordshire farmer Alastair Findlay, one-of-its-kind sprout breeder based in Britain took 15 years to produce the premier ‘MA Sprout.’ It is anticipated that to b up for sale this year in top city greengrocers.
The MA needs to be cooked in an elite saucepan likewise one designed by German cookware manufacturer Fissler, with a body of stainless steel and measuring 28cm-diameter and gold handles. Its lid and borders are adorned with around 200 diamonds. And this is complimented by the most precious wine–a 1945 Chateau Mouton-Rothschild costing a mere £9,270 a bottle. It is followed up by the Christmas pudding. Those who still have appetite to gulp more can eye cheese (a Stilton and truckle of cheddar) and nuts served on a handcrafted 24-carat-gold-plated, wooden Father Christmas nutcracker. The banquet is smoothed off with cigars and port or brandy, and a tray of William Curley’s chocolates. Having said a lot, are you ready to pay off its deserving cost that demands a silver sixpence or two, £400,029.91 for a table of 10?
