The BBC has made a list of the most expensive dishes in the world for the next time you feel like spending a small fortune on food. The list includes ice cream with 23 karat gold flakes, sushi wrapped in gold leaves, and cupcakes dusted with gold. Well, you can see the theme here. Most of these extravagant items must be preordered days in advance, so be sure to make plans accordingly!
Michelin-starred chef, Alan Coxon — recently voted amongst the Top 10 TV Chefs in the World in a poll commissioned by BBC Food in 100 countries — is also known as the Food Archaeologist, and as such, is in the process of introducing a Historic Food range to America that includes a unique 15th Century Mediaeval Ale-Gar, Roman Vinaigre, and Ancient Greek Vinaigre. Of the beautifully designed bottles and packaging, Coxon says: ‘I designed this myself as there was nothing on the market available that I felt suitable. I needed a bottle that looked old, yet at the same time modern, a contradiction in terms to say the least’.
