The ‘world’s most expensive’ tag has been associated with food in the past. Just a couple of days bag we spoke of the world’s most expensive cake and today it was the same title was bagged by a mince pie. Yes, you heard it right. The £3,000 (close to US$ 4,700) worth mince pie was won by 6 year old boy called Mukund in a raffle at the Marvellous Mince Pie Manufactory at The Exchange shopping centre in Ilford, East London. The pie delicacy here was created by 25-year-old luxury food designer Andrew Stellitano using vanilla beans and cinnamon from eastern spice markets. It was then decorated with platinum leaf and sugar made from whale excrement.
The pastry here is bound together with holy water from Lourdes. With such exotic ingredients, eating something like this would definitely be a once-in-lifetime opportunity for one’s taste buds.
