You’ll get all the rarest foods in the world for just RM330,000.
HAVE £61,000 (RM330,000) kicking around and want to impress your Valentine this year? A luxury retail website has designed a Valentine’s Day dinner featuring some of the rarest and most decadent ingredients on the planet like Almus white caviar, Amethyst Bamboo salt, and a Michelin-starred chef.
Created by the same folks who put together around-the-world trips to all 962 Unesco World Heritage Sites and a culinary odyssey to Michelin-starred restaurants in the world, the latest outrageously extravagant package from VeryFirstTo is an eight-course meal that would be prepared in the home by Michelin-starred British chef Adam Simmonds.
Predictably, the menu is designed as an aphrodisiacal experience that starts with oysters and Almus white caviar – a symbol of fertility – along with Pacific Bluefin tuna, foie gras, truffle salad and Wagyu beef.
Dishes are also paired with some of the finest wines in the world. Saffron risotto, for instance, is accompanied by a 1990 La Romanee-Conti, Domaine de la Romanee-Conti, valued at £17,000 (RM91,900)
To wash down the oysters, guests will sip on a £3,600 (RM19,500) bottle of 1959 Salon Blanc de Blancs, that also comes with South Sea pearls.
To cap off the meal, guests will tuck into bowls of vanilla and smoke chocolate Kopi Luwak ice cream. Kopi Luwak – known as the most expensive coffee in the world – is actually coffee berries extracted from the faeces of the Asian civet cat.
Simmonds earned his first Michelin star while at Ynyshir Hall in Wales in 2006.
The deal, which was also created in collaboration with GreatBritishChefs.com, expires Feb 11. For more info, visit veryfirstto.com. – AFP Relaxnews
