Spain recently launched the most expensive ham at 1,800 British pounds. It is a 7.5 kg Iberico ham. Not surprisingly, Iberico ham is in the most expensive sandwich at 100 pounds. The most expensive salad?
The Florette Sea and Earth salad was devised by Chef Raymond Blanc for the Hempel Hotel in London in July 2003. It contained Almas golden caviar, Beluga caviar, kreel-caught langoustines (it's like that shrimp in that Disney movie), Cornish crab and lobster, plus Florette baby leaf salad tossed in premium olive oil, along with grated truffle placed in a basket hand-made from courgettes, red peppers and potato and decorated with gold leaf. A serving cost £635.60.
This is the most expensive bottle of wine said to be worth 105,000 pounds.
This is the most expensive chocolate, a madeleine, at $250 per.
This is the menu of the most expensive meal, served three years ago in The Dome Restaurant in Bangkok. The bill, President Arroyo and Rep. Suarez, take note, came to $30,000.
