Your $200 Wagyu beef not quite indulgent enough? For Valentine’s Day mega-splendor, give this $34,000 Fabergé Pudding a taste
by Tia kim
Lovers of indulgence might have already tried such bucket list experiences as the English Wagyu Beef Pie ($15,900 whole, or $1,990 per slice) served by the Fence Gate Inn in Lancashire, UK, or perhaps Almas Caviar, for a comparatively thrifty $1,100 per ounce, while those closer to home might have even doled out $595 per person for dinner at Manhattan’s Masa. For players who think such excesses are still farm-team, and want to join the major leagues, we have the Fabergé Pudding, prepared by Mark Guibert, head chef of the Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel in Bownesson- Windermere, UK. Made of four varieties of Belgian chocolate, its subtly flavored with orange, peach, and whiskey, and crowned by edible gold leaf and (of course) champagne caviar. The pudding is served with the most expensive dessert wine readily available: Chateau d’Yquem. The price? A mere $34,500.
