The lifestyles of the rich and famous include exquisite meals painstakingly prepared by the world’s best chefs.
Of course, because these dishes are unique, the price tag is definitely worth more than the paycheck of most individuals.
We take a look at some of the world’s most expensive meals which hold their very own Guinness World Records.
Most Expensive Dessert
The Serendipity 3 Restaurant in New York introduced The Frrrozen Haute Chocolate ice cream sundae in 2007 which uses a blend of 28 cocoas and decorated with 5 g (0.17 oz) of edible 23-karat gold and is served in a goblet lined with edible gold.
You can also find an 18-karat gold bracelet at the base of the goblet with 1 carat of white diamonds. The dessert is eaten with a gold spoon, itself decorated with white and chocolate-colored diamonds, which can also be taken home after you’ve enjoyed the dessert.
The dessert has a price tag of $25,000 (£12,000).
Most Expensive Milkshake
The most expensive milkshake in the world also comes from Serendipity 3. While its nowhere near as expensive as the The Frrrozen Haute Chocolate ice cream sundae, its costs a pretty penny at $100 per order.
The LUXE Milkshake which is sold for $100 (£75.05; €85.60) consists of expensive ingredients such as Jersey milk, Tahitian vanilla ice cream, Devonshire luxury clotted cream, Madagascar vanilla beans, 23 karat edible gold, whipped cream, Le Cremose Baldizzone, and Luxardo Gourmet Maraschino Cherries.
Most Expensive Cheesecake
If you’re a cheesecake lover, you might find it justifiable to spend $4,592.42 (£3,496.44; 3,955.57€) on a special treat made out of buffalo ricotta, white truffle, and gold leaves. The most expensive cheesecake on the record was created by Chef Raffaele Ronca at
Ristorante Rafele in New York. (ANGEL ONG)
