The world of the rich and famous is fascinating for many of us. They lead the life many of us want and they do what we only dream of us. Being a food fanatic, this time we’ll have a look at the most expensive foods in the world, most expensive drinks, deserts or spices.

Most Expensive Food&Drinks

1. Saffron, a spice grown worldwide, is derived from the saffron crocus flower. A pound of dry saffron (0.45 kg) requires 50,000 to 75,000 flowers to make, meaning an entire football field of these flowers. Requiring so much resources and labor, prices for the spice go around US$500/pound to US$5,000/pound (US$1100 to US$11,000 per kilogram).

Crocus sativus

2. The most expensive nut in the world is the Macadamia nut. The macadamia tree produces nuts only after it’s 7-10 years old, requiring fertile soil and heavy rainfall. These nuts have a very hard seed, but once it’s open it reveals a creamy white kernel containing up to 80% oil and 4% sugar. The cost of a kilogram of these nuts exceeds 30$.

3. The most expensive caviar in the world is not the black one, but the almas caviar! The word ‘almas’ is Iranian for diamond. Beluga caviar comes from a fish over 100 years old, that is virtually unchanged for 120 million years. The luxurious caviar comes from the oldest survivor of the Dinosaur era. Beluga caviar ranges in price from more than $5,000 per kilogram in the United States

Almas

4. The most expensive mushroom in the world is the white truffle. The mushroom has its origins in the Langhe area of the Piedmont region in northern Italy, it can reach 12 cm diameter and 500g. These truffles are sold at a amazing price of 2,000 and 4,000 per kilogram ($1350 – $2700 per pound). The record price for this truffle was paid last year, in December, when Stanley Ho, the owner of the Macau casino paid $330,000 for 1.5kg of truffles.

Trufeli

5. The most expensive potato in the world is a French one, La Bonnotte. Annually, only 100 tons of this top quality potato are cultivated and collected only on the island Noirmoutier. The potato fields require to be fertilized only with seaweed in a climate shaped by the nearby sea. The cost of one single kilogram can reach €500 since this type of potato is almost extinct.

La Bonnotte

6. The most expensive beef in the world is the type of beef coming from the Wagyu cows. These Japanese cows are fed the best grass and provided the best treatment. That is why the meat is especially tender and particularly expensive. 200 grams of a fillet cost in Europe more than 100 dollars.

Meat

7. The most expensive sandwich in the world is the club sandwich from Essen aka von Essen Platinum Club Sandwich. This triple-decker delicacy contains the finest chicken, ham, hard-boiled quails’ eggs and white truffles and it’s currently sold at Cliveden, Berkshire. The chicken (poulet de Bresse) is referred to as the ‘fourth gastronomic wonder of the world served with a topping of white truffles, sold at over a thousands ponds a month. At 1,182 calories, with 1.8oz of fat, it’s not the healthiest dish but certainly one of the most expensive. Costing 100 pounds (almost 200 dollars), this is a must-try for the food fanatics.

Most Expensive Omelet

10. Off to something sweet now with one of the most expensive deserts in the world, served at Serendipity 3, a popular restaurant in the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The $1000 sundae was introduced in 2004 and was listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most expensive dessert. It’s made up of 5 scoops of the richest Tahitian vanilla bean ice cream, Madagascar vanilla, 23K edible gold leaf and one of the most expensive chocolates in the world, Amedei Porceleana.

Chocopologie by Knipschildt

12. The world’s finest and most expensive coffee is Kopi Luwak. The coffee comes from the Indonesian island of Sumatra and the total annual production is only around 500 pounds of beans. That is why the price of a pound is outrages – $300 or more.

Most Expensive Whiskey The Macallan Fine&Rare Vintage

17. Wray Nephew White Overproof Rum is merely the top-selling high strength rum in the world, bottled in 1940. Only four bottles are left from this precious liquor, each being estimated at $53,000.

Most Expensive Rom Wray&Nephew

18. The most expensive cocktail in the world, “Diamonds-Are-Forever”, has no special ingredients like we had so far. The only excuse for wearing the €11,000 price tag is that the olive is replaced by a 1.6 carat diamond. To be found in the hotel Ritz-Carlton in Tokyo.

Most Expensive Cocktail Diamonds-Are-Forever

Rich people are ridiculous.



Posted by chef otto | March 20th, 2008 12:37 pm

What begins as amusing soon becomes distressing for obvious reasons. There’s nothing wrong with valid luxury: Paying top dollar for top quality is best policy for food, clothes or automobiles is great policy, but spectacularly conspicuous and vacuous consumption is boorish and gauche at this level, even setting aside profoundly disturbing social considerations. Dope slaps all around.



Posted by NotSpam | March 20th, 2008 12:57 pm

I think your info on the Macadamia nut is outdated… Or else you just don’t know where to shop. I can buy a kilo of them at Trader Joe’s for about $5. My mother-in-law can buy a kilo at her local grocery store, in Malawi, for under $1.



Posted by Craig | March 20th, 2008 1:33 pm

So some little things, like Ritz-Carlton, not “Ritts-Karlton”, Wagyu, not “Vaghia” and such. It’s not too hard to find more expensive whisky or champagne, but if you limit it to current production you may be correct (though technically, the whisky you mention is a blend of older ones…)



Posted by Austin | March 20th, 2008 2:34 pm

Do you know why the Kopi Luwak coffee is so expensive? The coffee beans are collected from the excrement of civet cats that live in Sumatra. The partially digested beans are then processed and roasted.

Is it worth the money? I’ve personally never have had Kopi Luwak coffee, but reviews seem to suggest it’s good, but obviously overpriced.



Posted by tim | March 20th, 2008 2:50 pm

your conversion for chinese money is off something terrible. 1 Yuan = about 1/7 of a dollar, not the other way around… seems like these aren’t really the most expensive foods.

I seem to recall that when you see a bunch of beans (the Kopi Luwak coffee) in a ‘stick’ of poo (like in the case), it means that the cats were force fed the beans. Wikipedia has some more info (search Kopi Luwak coffee), but lacks a citation. Hooray for animal cruelty at the hands of the rich!

The best Khaviar in the world is from Iran,Almas is Iranian word,i don’t know were you get the idea that this product is from Russia,it says Iranian on top of container too.
Saffran is from iran too it’ prnounce “za’feran” in Farsi.



Posted by Roger | March 21st, 2008 4:09 am

Maxy,
you need to do a bit more research before writing things
“almas” is an Iranian word which means “Diamon”
You can even see on the caviar box it is saying “IRANIAN” and you mentioned Russian in your text!
Please correct your content



Posted by Ali | March 21st, 2008 4:12 am

Why didn’t you mention that both Saffron and Caviar are Persian?
What are you racist or something?

Posted by amows | March 21st, 2008 10:49 am

1) The main sources of caviar are from four species found in the Caspian Sea of IRAN.
2) The main producers of saffron also are Iran, India and recently Spain, but the most famous and highest quality saffron is from its origin in IRAN.

I think you forgot about wine, one of the most expensive drinks. If my sources are correct, the most expensive wine of the world was worth $190.000 in an auction, it was a Doble Mágnum de Vega Sicilia Unico de 1990.

your pricing on that tea is way off. 1 dollar equals about 7 chinese yuan. a cup would only cost 2 dollars and a kilo would cost $242. it’s HARDLY the most expensive tea in the world. I’ve paid more for Jasmine.

Correct Ceci about COCOA GOURMET, This Swiss chocolate company is really the Must. In quality, service, and their wooden box are splendid. You even forget to say that when you order online their precious chocolate, they customize for each client the box. From the velvet color to the brass plate and even the wax seal. Well I must be honest with you, i have order last month one box of their 22 CARAT GOLD CHOCOLATES and one box of their SWEET DIAMONDS CHOCOLATES. The result…UNBELIEVABLE !

Jake: i would love to have any of this accept the Kopi Luwak i know how it is made and have absolutely no intentions in imbibing such a thing as well whom ever is writing this blog needs to learn better grammar

Erm, I’m not sure someone who can’t capitalise, punctuate or spell properly ought to be criticising someone else’s grammar!! I think you mean ‘except’ not ‘accept’ and ‘no intention of imbibing’ not ‘no intentions in imbibing’, ‘I’ and the first letter of a sentence should always be a capital letter, and punctuation is essential to the meaning of a sentence, otherwise it is just a nonsensical babble of consciousness.

I’m sure you’ve heard the saying about people in glass houses…. In future, before before you go worrying about the tiny splinter in your neighbour’s eye, it might benefit you (not to mention them) to first remove the plank from your own.

how much does ases and spade cost



Posted by Emily | November 26th, 2008 8:08 am

Why is it that a lot of this most expensive stuff is also stuff where if you REALLY look at it, no one would want to eat it? (let alone fork over all that cash!)

Truffles- fungus dug up by pigs? You’re going to eat an underground fungus that grew on a tree root. Why?
Fish Eggs- Saw a show on how they get caviar on Discovery. They pick up the fish and squeeze them till the eggs come out. Should see the fish’s expression!
Big Dead Bug- A lobster. Really, he crawls around, many legs, has a hard shell and big antenna. How is he not a bug?
Cat Poop Beans- Other commenters are correct on where the beans get their “Special Flavor”

Adding non-edible things seems like the ‘cop out’ way to go, anyone can land a diamond on whatever food and say it’s the most expensive. It’s not going to taste crazy different if someone’s let a rock onto it. Same for the golden sundae and jewel vodka. It’s not the food that’s so expensive, it’s the bonus!

The worthy things here are the spices, rare potatoes, unusual cow, and exotic chocolate and rare liquors, as they guarentee a taste experience but are difficult to obtain. They also sound edible when really looked into unlike some of the above…

Lots of that stuff you wouldn’t even want to eat. Lobster and caviar pizza soaked in cognac? Lobster and caviar omlette? Yuck. Civit dung coffee? Gross. Would you put chicken, ham and quail eggs on a sandwich? Eddible gold leaf? That’s insanely stupid.

Most of these meals are just someone trying to combine the most expensive possible ingredients.

Saffron, excellent. Macadamia nuts, delicious (though not all that expensive). Truffles and kobi beef, I’ve never tried, but they’re recognised luxuries.

But thousands of dollars for a single dish, or drink? That’s increadibly wasteful. You’d have to be a major show-off, with no taste or discretion.

This food amazes me :D I enjoyed reading this, although it would be okay for people who had ALOT and I mean ALOT of money to spare to buy this stuff, but I think its ridiculous to buy something out of your league that can be consumed in 5 minutes just for the “taste” and “quality”



Posted by jake | October 13th, 2009 9:01 pm

why would somone pay that much $$$$$ to yea some food. rich people should go help people, not be greedy and pay for a half million doller meal.



Posted by McVarden | October 20th, 2009 8:49 am

i read those… “rich people should go help people” and “rich people should donate” yada yada yada.. get off it…. that’s their civil right to waste money if they can… they are not responsible for your wasted life…. and these people didn’t get there without shedding a single sweat to where they are now… so mind your own business… it sounds so bitter of you not to get a taste of their lives

as for the food however, some food are deliciously expensive for a reason… still there are some food that are expensively priced and yet may taste disgusting…



Posted by chris | October 21st, 2009 5:45 pm

you spell stuff wrong



Posted by Steve | October 31st, 2009 11:10 am

Not very expensive, and not very impressive. A couple hundred years ago there was a huge difference between peasants and kings. Today’s peasants live like yesterday’s kings; today’s elite have to work pretty hard to demonstrate their eliteness. ;)



Posted by Hans van Hagen | November 7th, 2009 10:47 pm

If the rich people who eat and drink this excellent food start eating ”normal tasty food” they will be still happy and not hungry….
And the money they don’t have to spent can be used for very hungry little children, all over the world.
Surprised huh? :)



Posted by Aaron | November 12th, 2009 11:59 am

I used to live in one of the most well to do areas in the world. A house aroudn the corner listed for 45million canadian dollars. People in that area could afford anything on that list but trust me, they are cheap as hell. They spend millions on their houses and possessions so that other people will know they are rich. But, open their fridge. lol. “no name” brand food and cases of bottled water from costco.
People who eat the 1000 ice cream took a cash advance on their visa for the sake of saying they ate it.

The most expencieve tea is by far not Tie Guan Yin, the picture doesn`t even show the same tea, anyway there are many award wining special teas with the price above 300 $/100 grams.
Probably the most expenceive tea is the Wu Yi Da Hong Pao from the original 4 mother bushes, but most is reserved to the chinese guvernment, once the american president got 50 grams of it and he felt offended, later he was told that only 200 grams was the total harvest and it is the most expenceive tea in the world, and another high priced tea is the 50`s Hong Yin (red label) Pu erh that was sold on an auction for 10.000 $ for a cake that is around 357 grams.
The famous teafarms, specialy those that produce the 10 most famous chinese teas hold auction for the motherbush teas, Long Jing old bushes are around 800 years old and those teas are more than TGY, a tea that is very good and one of the best known oolongs in southeast asia, and in japan, but the picture shows another tea.

Great list of very expensive F&B you got here! But regardless how delicious they are; they’ll turn into stinky stuff in the morning or soon after you consume them



Posted by sam garcia philippnes | March 10th, 2010 11:35 am

only rich people can taste this food,just give you idea when a person is hungry they dont care how cheap or how unexpensive the food,what they think is how they going to eat on that same day.my advice to people with lots of money donate it.be a good citizen of the world..imagine the kids that dont eat for 1 or 2 day..or even worst they dying for hunger..

Most of you are morons. Not all of you, but enough that I feel more than justified in taking a couple of minutes to write this. Some of you make good points in your arguments, but for the most part, any salient points you make are immediately eradicated by the following problems: poor grammar, bad spelling, rudeness, sloth, and general misanthropy in the form of miserable lying.



Posted by kahrl | April 14th, 2010 5:17 pm

if i was going to eat anything from the list up there, i’d be sure to have my gf and all my best friends there enjoying it with me :D



Posted by Soldado | July 9th, 2010 2:29 am

I don’t have a problem with the pricing as long as each of the foods listed above came with a very detailed table outlining each: ingredient (what is made of), vitamin percentage per serving, calories, kcalories, fat percentage, place of origin (exactly where it was grown or produced), taste buds in my body it will activate, will it make me addictive or have addictive properties that can attach to my fat cells, % of sugars it contains, % of salts it contains, what type of illness the food can prevent or help fight off with long-term servings, and last but not least I would like to know if each and everyone participating with the selling of these foods to me wore gloves while handling the food. Then I think I would definitely buy it.

Tieguanyin is just a type of tea, like orange pekoe. So not all Tieguanyin teas are $3000 per kilo. In fact most of them are pretty cheap and common.
But I suppose there could be one that cost that much because it was hand picked by monkeys because it’s in a place high up in the mountains that humans can’t get to.

Please….. everyone here complaining that rich people waste money and the like is just a hater. If you think they should give away all their money, then you start by giving yours to the starving people in the world. If not, go make millions and set an example.

In addition, if you ever bought a pair of jeans that cost over $100, how are you different? Why don’t you just settle for the cheapest as you suggest others do? Besides, until you walk a mile in another’s shoes, don’t presume to know. If many of us were millionaires, the world would be a lot worse because we would have the resources to carry out all sorts of ills.

So, you buy your overpriced and unnecessary jeans and shoes at the expense of millions of children who cannot buy food for a dollar a day, and let everyone else live their life.

To those who are offended by such spending, it is a voluntary tax on wealth, ego, and the ambition for status that redistributes wealth to more practical people as quickly as possible.
I am always cheered by such extravagances, putting cash in the hands of those with more sense. It shows that capital can still be concentrated for more useful purposes for those with vision, and those in need.

Reading this I’m reminded of a line from the song Red neck Woman “Victoria Secret…their stuff is real nice. But I can buy the same damn thing on a Wal Mart shelf half price.” Ok Sure its not exactly the same thing and yeah things may not taste the same, but really?

First of all, guy, cruelty happens at the hands of the rich and not so rich so your comment is ridiculous.

Moe, Saffron is not just Iranian, it is native to southwest Asia, (i know Iran is there so no stupid comments)but it is produced in many countries, a country cant claim a plant being theirs, that is the stupidest thing I ever heard, does it only grow in Iran?? because I have read that the largest producer of saffron is Spain, not Iran, in fact if you read the papers now you will see that Spain is having problems controling the quality of their saffron (its supposed to be the best) because Iranian, Greek and Moroccan saffron of lesser quality keeps on being labeled as Spanish.

What…no bird’s nest? I would think something used for hundreds of years, fetching $900-$4,500 per lb ($55-$280 per oz) would be on this list over macadamia nuts which are comparatively dirt cheap. Even a bowl of bird’s nest soup will set you back >$30 and there’s only about 3/4 of an ounce in the soup!

I ran across this page yesterday, and took some notes. Today my husband made the monthly pilgrammage to our local food bank to pick up our “supplies”. I handed him a sealed envelope, and I instructed him to hand the note unopened to whichever community food pantry volunteer would help him gather our supplies.

1. A dozen Peruvian artichokes.
2. Piedmont white truffles, but only those rooted by porcine virgins.
3. 10 lbs bag of La Bonnotte taters.
4. 2 lbs unground Kopi Luwak coffee.

LESSON LEARNED: Food pantry volunteers find little humor in their work, and British husbands do not like surprises of this genre.
