The most expensive Christmas meal is on offer for £125,000 on the website VeryFirstTo. The race is on to be the most expensive in any and every field. More and more people are joining in the trend as it is a lot of fun and it makes perfect economic sense. Any project that aims to create a new record as the most expensive in its category generates a lot of publicity in the media and highlights the people behind the project, the firm and the designer. Very often, a charitable cause is also incorporated in the project to make the outlandish pricing more acceptable. However in this case it is the ingredients and the wine that have made the meal the most expensive in the world.
All Ingredients Are Most Expensive in their Category
The bottle of champagne included in the meal dates back to the beginning of the 20thcentury pre dating World War One. The rare bottle of champagne is valued at £37,000. The other ingredients chosen are also the most expensive in their respective categories. The exclusive Almas caviar is costing £5,000 and the watermelon is the priciest at about £2,600. A whole white truffle costing £3,500 and dodine of rare breed turkey with Wagyu beef fillet and heart costing dodine of rare breed turkey with Wagyu beef fillet and heart are the other expensive ingredients to be used for the Christmas meal. Gold is a natural choice as a material for most expensive products and £6,000 worth of edible 50-carat gold leaf will be used in the meal mostly as wrappings.
